This news magazine program began as a half hour show, evolving into the one hour investigative report that it remains today. The name has changed from “48 Hours” to “48 Hours Investigates” and the current, “48 Hours Mystery”.
Having won numerous awards in broadcast, it also now features a stellar ‘cast’ of individual award winning reporters and has been known to not just report on stories, but make real differences.
