RISE As Ukrainian families grieve the losses of their loved ones in Russia’s continued conflict, correspondent Scott Pelley joins a group of widows and children of the war on a mountain climb in the Austrian Alps, a journey of recovery and resilience. Organized by a charity founded by an American marine who is still finding his footing after serving three combat tours in Iraq, Pelley joins the bereaved families, who traveled 1,300 miles after their city was bombed, on an expedition of hope, community and teamwork. This is a double-length segment. Oriana Zill de Granados and Michael Rey are the producers.

SEALAND – Correspondent Jon Wertheim journeys by boat (and winch) into the world’s smallest—and unlikeliest—state: the Principality of Sealand. Just off the English coast, and roughly the landmass of two tennis courts, it boasts a full-time population of one. It was built during World War II as a nautical fort, and later repurposed as a “pirate radio” station under its monarchs, the Bates family. Wertheim takes a tour of this micronation and its history of piracy, coups, countercoups and rogues. Michael Gavshon is the producer.

ANCIENT VINES – Correspondent Sharyn Alfonsi reports from the former Soviet republic of Georgia, regarded by scholars as the birthplace of wine. Alfonsi delves into its deep history of winemaking and the enduring vineyards that have survived thousands of years of invasions, wars and communist rule. She visits the lush wine region of Kakheti to meet monks protecting these ancient vines and one American vineyard owner who is committed to bringing Georgian wines to the rest of the world. This is a double-length segment. Ashley Velie is the producer.
