With the introduction of this theme, 48 Hours was given a makeover. The opening graphics showed us traveling at high speed through busy city streets. It gave the CBS news magazine a contemporary and urgent feel, which stood in stark contrast to the calm en retro look of the original CBS news magazine, 60 Minutes. This theme is composed by Richard Fiocca, whose long term association with 48 Hours started with this theme.
