Black in Bellaire

Correspondent: Bryant Gumbel
Producer: David Scott

Robbie Tolan dreamed of following in the footsteps of his father, retired Major League Baseball outfielder Bobby Tolan. But in the early morning of Dec. 31, 2008, those dreams may have ended in a confrontation with police in affluent, predominantly white Bellaire, Tex. Wrongly suspected of stealing his own car, Tolan and his cousin were detained at gunpoint by police on the doorstep of his family's home. A moment later, Robbie Tolan's parents watched as their son was shot in the chest by a police officer. In an extended report, host Bryant Gumbel examines this disturbing case and interviews the Tolan family as they speak out for the first time about race and the night that changed everything.

Total Recall

Correspondent: Bernard Goldberg
Producer: Joe Perskie

She is forever linked to the most bizarre scandal in skating history. Mention the name Tonya Harding and almost anyone over age 25 will have total recall of the events that overshadowed the 1994 Lillehammer Olympic Games. Just weeks before the Games, Harding's ex-husband Jeff Gillooly and two associates conspired to remove her chief rival, Nancy Kerrigan, from competition in the U.S. Figure Skating Championships. Though Harding denied involvement in the infamous assault on Kerrigan, her life was never the same again. Now, 15 years after the sordid incident that has defined her life, Harding sits down with correspondent Bernard Goldberg for an exclusive one-on-one conversation.

When most young children play around at the driving range, people rarely give them a second look. But when six-year-old Kyle Lograsso tees it up, everybody stops to watch - he's already shot a 38 on nine holes and can drive the ball more than 150 yards. Even more impressive is that Kyle accomplishes all this with just one eye. At age two, he was diagnosed with bilateral retinolblastoma, a rare form of cancer, in both eyes, and subsequently underwent months of chemotherapy and the removal of his left eye. Now, a year and a half since Kyle was originally profiled on Real Sports , correspondent Frank Deford travels to Kyle's new home in Murrieta, Cal. as the young athlete gets his groove back following the return of his father from a recent deployment to Iraq.
