The Greatest Loss In a very special edition of 60 Minutes, Liz Hayes reports on what is the most important, and personal, story of her career. However, it's also a story that in modern Australia she shouldn't need to tell. It's about decent people in the country who are dying because of a rural health system that's broken and failing them.
