Summary RACE FOR LIFEFour Australian heroes will compete in the toughest amateur cycling race in the world. Alongside them will be comedian Hamish Blake, and Tour de France champion Cadel Evans. Together they'll cycle the equivalent of eight vertical kilometres in three days, as they climb through the Italian Alps. These men and women bravely served their country in wars and other conflicts, but in doing so developed an awful condition, which has no definitive treatment or cure. So perhaps even more bravely, they are now hoping to fight their way back, healing themselves by surviving one of the most demanding feats of endurance.SEEING IS BELIEVINGIn one of the greatest scientific advances ever, doctors and engineers have developed the bionic eye. Although the technology is in its early stages, it is already changing lives. People who have been completely blind for decades are now able to distinguish shapes, light and movement. 60 Minutes is there as a bionic eye is switched on the first time, and a man who's been blind for 30 years, gets to see his grandchildren for the first time.CHARLIE'S FIGHTBACKFor 50 years Charlie Phillott and his family worked the land on Carisbrook Station in outback Queensland. A year ago the Phillott's were forced to walk away from Carisbrook, bullied by the bank into leaving their home. But don't think the bank has won, because Charlie Phillott is no pushover and he's taking his fight all the way to the top of one of Australia's largest financial institutions
