Biden his time – This weekend on 60 MINUTES

Advertisement

As vote counting continues in the United States presidential election it appears increasingly likely that Joe Biden will finish the race for the White House ahead of Donald Trump.

But that doesn’t guarantee he will become America’s next Commander-in-Chief. The incumbent President has already deployed an army of lawyers to challenge the results of the election.

As Tara Brown reports, turmoil in the United States is set to continue.

THE KING AND THAI

Here’s a regal dilemma to consider: Is it right for a king with 70 million subjects and wealth in excess of 70 billion dollars to be seen frolicking around in a crop top rather than a crown?

Many people in Thailand are outraged by the skimpy outfits their monarch, King Vajiralongkorn, loves to wear. And they’re also furious at other aspects of his outlandish lifestyle – his womanising, his alleged brutality and the fact he seems to prefer the crisp air of the Bavarian Alps to the stifling humidity of Bangkok.

Tom Steinfort reports that there is also the small matter of Fufu, the pet poodle the king controversially appointed as the Chief Marshall of Thailand’s air force.

BANANARAMA

When you first think about it, it is utterly bananas that a band with such a silly name could go so far. Even Bananarama’s founding members, Keren Woodward and Sara Dallin, think so.

They pinch themselves that 40 years on from first teaming up they’re still together and still performing.

But as Liam Bartlett discovers in a charming interview with Keren and Sara, Bananarama’s success is not nuts at all. It’s all about having the talent to make some of pop’s most memorable songs, combined with the energy needed to smash through the music industry’s glass ceiling.
