Lady and the Trumps
Just as the world has never experienced a US president quite like Donald Trump, it's not seen a first lady like Melania Trump either. Despite being one of the most photographed women on the planet, she remains virtually unknown. But wealthy New York socialite Stephanie Winston Wolkoff is now controversially trying to change all that. She says she was "besties" with Melania for 15 years, and because of their friendship was not only appointed a senior adviser to the first lady, she was also asked to organise Trump's presidential inauguration. But two years ago the friendship between the two women soured. Stephanie claims she was the victim of an orchestrated political hit and was bitterly disappointed when Melania abandoned her. Many are calling it a despicable act of revenge, but Stephanie has now written a tell-all book about the first lady and her secrets, and as she explains to Liam Bartlett in an exclusive interview, there are plenty of secrets to tell about Melania and the Donald.

The Long Haul
In the fight against coronavirus COVID-19, working out why the disease attacks people differently is vital. It's so sneaky, because as often as it kills it can also be completely benign. But there's also another group of sufferers: an increasing number for whom recovering from the disease is not the end of their ordeal, it's just the beginning. They're not regaining normal health, which means tasks as simple as walking up a flight of stairs continue to be a struggle. As Tom Steinfort reports, the great worry for scientists is that these so-called COVID long-haul victims might bear the scars of the pandemic for the rest of their lives.

Urban Legend
For all of Keith Urban's phenomenal worldwide success, he remains delightfully unassuming and unaffected. It's a typically Australian trait that endears him to his millions of fans. On assignment for 60 Minutes, Peter Overton discovers that with Keith, what you see really is what you get. And that's a hardworking superstar who also loves being a husband and a dad.

No Second Prize In the US presidential race there's no second prize for either Donald Trump or Joe Biden. It's victory or nothing! With so much riding on the result, it's not surprising the campaign has become so personal and incredibly vicious. The candidates' nastiness, as well as their lack of respect for each other, was abundantly clear when they met for the first presidential debate a few days ago. Insults flew faster and further than any talk of policies and promises. It is a great shame for an already deeply divided country and further complicated by the shock news the president and first lady have both been diagnosed with coronavirus COVID-19. On assignment for 60 Minutes, Nine News US correspondent Alexis Daish reports that reuniting the US will be a near impossible task for whoever wins. The Big Smoke The flames of last summer's apocalyptic bushfires are well and truly embedded in the memories of all Australians. But what scientists have now discovered is that it was actually the smoke from the blazes that caused the greatest human loss. For weeks and weeks, vast swathes of the country were choked in a suffocating haze of highly polluted air. It led to a staggering toll. More than 400 deaths, as well as 4000 hospital admissions, have been directly attributed to the bushfire smoke. As Tara Brown reports, everyone hopes this year's fire season will be less severe, but unless the insidious health threat posed by smoke is fully understood, more lives will be at risk.
