More than 50 CBS News personnel--including "CBS Evening News" anchor Dan Rather and "60 Minutes" correspondents Diane Sawyer and Ed Bradley--are now encamped in the Soviet Union, working on a two-hour documentary, "Seven Days in Moscow," scheduled to air in June. CBS News President Howard Stringer told the Washington Post that the Soviets have permitted "enormous access," even allowing the use of 20 walkie-talkies by CBS personnel in the Moscow area. Among the more unusual contacts the CBS folks made: one director was offered "documents"; correspondent Lesley Stahl was told by a Soviet film official that "she was the prettiest thing he'd ever seen"; and reporter Bob Simon attended a rock concert in Lithuania during which the crowd "started singing 'We Shall Overcome'--in English," Stringer said.
