Revisiting downtown Winnsboro in South Carolina three years after Walmart left. For nearly 20 years retailers in downtown Winnsboro, South Carolina were unable to compete with Walmart's cheap products and one-stop shopping. So when NewsHour Weekend's Christopher Booker visited in 2016, reporting on news that the superstore was closing, town leaders had high hopes for revitalization. Three years later, Booker visited Main Street again to find less optimism and a downtown that is it still very much in the shadow of the corporation.

Construction on Rome's new subway unearths ancient wonders. Rome's new Metro C line near the Colosseum has provided archaeologists with a rare opportunity to dig sometimes 65 feet below ground, an otherwise difficult depth. These excavations have uncovered thousands of relics, some dating back to the B.C. era. From farmland and its irrigation system to a 14-room home with a bathhouse, underground heating and mosaic floors, NewsHour Weekend Special Correspondent Christopher Livesay takes stock.

The leader of an Italian town known for taking in migrants is targeted by the country's populist government. For 20 years, the small, southern Italian town of Riace has been a beacon for several thousand immigrants from around the world fleeing poverty, disenfranchisement and war. And by welcoming migrants during the 2015 refugee crisis, Riace gained a reputation as symbol of tolerance.

The largest organism on Earth is dying. With 47,000 trunks spread out over a 106-acre section of Utah from a single massive root, the so-called Pando is considered to be the largest living organism on the planet. Rather than growing from seeds, Pando's saplings sprout from one root system. As older trees die, they are replaced by new saplings. But scientists say that after likely thousands of years in existence, overgrazing by deer and elk is killing the Pando's young saplings and threatening its survival. NewsHour Weekend's Christopher Booker reports.
