Video: What Did Christ Look Like?

At CBS News:

On Dec. 24,1968, "60 Minutes" aired this story about Christ's physical appearance. Looking through the "60 Minutes" archive, this piece stood out as something you probably wouldn't see on network TV today. The C-words -- Christ and Christmas -- have largely been replaced by religion-neutral terms like "season" and "holiday" to the dismay of many Christians who see it as "taking the Christ out of Christmas." But, as you'll see here, correspondent Harry Reasoner dives right in with the opening line: "Tomorrow is Christmas."

At the time, the "60 Minutes" broadcast was still in its embryonic stage, and you'll notice that the story is different in tone and style from today's broadcast. Reasoner muses on the question, what did Jesus Christ really look like? He searches for the answer in paintings, poems, and letters.
