>> osgood: and the man who invented the teleprompter went on to win a technical emmy but it was not until his induction in the cable hall of fame in 2008 that he made his first public speech using a teleprompter. >> osgood: ahead, the stuff of legends. >> yeah, that was in beverly hills. i love his pink shirt. >> osgood: and later bill geist at the u.s. pole dance finals. seriously. eens. a place to help you stay well. where liz kiem can find answers to nagging questions like...

6:56 am
that's health in numbers. unitedhealthcare. >> osgood: prince william was front and center this past week. but another prince remains. prince harry. and then there's the man who really runs britain prime minister david cameron who lives at one of the world's most famous addresses number 10 downing street. katie couric now has both their stories. >> couric: it was another moment for the history books. at one of the most historic addresses in great britain. 10 downing street. its current resident, prime minister david cameron, opened the gates for a street party to celebrate the royal wedding. the building with its famous black door has been home to 52 prime ministers since 1735.
6:57 am
let's go inside, shall we? >> yeah. if door opens. once the door didn't open. i was just left outside gently knocking. please, let me in. >> couric: so you've lived here for almost a year. how are you liking it? >> it's, to start with it is odd because it's a bit like living in a museum. >> couric: you pretty much live and work at the same place. >> my commute from my bedroom to our office is about 30 seconds. that's quite nice. >> reporter:. >> couric: at 44 david cameron is the youngest prime minister in nearly 200 years. since his election last may, he's lived in this museum of british history with his wife samantha and their three young children. do you spend a lot of time saying don't touch that. >> they rush into that little door there which is where all the security cameras are. they get in there and fiddle them all around and change the alarm settings and then they race down there corridor. there are little sweets on the cabinet table.
6:58 am
they wore that one out. they rush in there and stuff their pockets full and race upstairs. this is where we sit. >> couric: long before cameron was born.... >> hostilities will end officially. >> couric:... sir winton churchill announced.... >> the german war is therefore at an end. >> couric: and margaret thatcher, the first and only female prime minister, met president ronald reagan. >> these were... these candlesticks were presents from ronald reagan to margaret thatcher. so there we are. a little bit of america here. this was churchill's favorite armchair. >> couric: and there's a little bit of churchill everywhere. do you ever sit in this chair? >> i don't. i'm so worried i might break it or something like that. >> couric: i understand there are marks in here because he used to dig his fingernails into the arms when he was nervous. >> i didn't know that. there's a famous... the dispatch box in the house of lords where he used to make his speeches during the war, you can see the mark where he banged his hand on it with the
6:59 am
signet ring and you can see the chips in the wood. this is prime ministers all the way up. >> reporter: the walls contain the portraits of every prime minister but one: cameron's won't be there until he's left office. that's the rule. >> this is margaret thatcher. and blair, major blair. this one just appeared. this is the latest. >> couric: since taking gordon brown's place david cameron has encountered the history but also the enormous responsibility of the office he holds. his government instituted massive spending cuts to deal with a 260 billion dollar deficit. the slashes in welfare programs and loss of government jobs led to protests in the streets of london. already at war in afghanistan, 10,000 strong alongside their american allies, the british military is now heavily involved in libya. >> we took as a government
7:00 am
some quite brave and difficult steps. i think the country understands that, but i think the country would have taken a pretty dim view if we had said, well, there's a massacre going to take place in libya, a massacre we could prevent but we're not going to do this. we'll leave that to someone else. that's not the sort of country that britain ought to be and it's not the sort of country we are. >> couric: another resident of 10 downing street writing his own chapter of british and world history. from the man surrounded by england's past to the nation's man of the moment, william got hitched so now all eyes are on harry. and the truth is, they already were. >> harry! >> couric: there's just something about 26-year-old prince harry that sets him apart from the rest of the royal family. >> he's the least royal royal i've ever met. >> reporter: british tv
7:01 am
correspondent tom bradby has known harry for years. >> he doesn't want any deference. nothing like that. nothing. he doesn't like being called a prince. doesn't like being treated like a prince. >> the differences between will dwram and harry are palpable. harry has all the privileges that william has but none of the responsibility. >> reporter: this writer says there's a reason harry has a reputation as a bad boy. >> harry's been mixed up with drink and drugs. he's run around with a bad crowd. he's got into scrapes with photographers outside nightclubs. >> harry! >> and william doesn't do things like that. he's more aware of responsibilities and his future. harry is not entirely sure what his future is. he can have a great time. he can date any girl in the world. >> couric: that may be but mostly harry's eyes have been on chelsea davey, his date for friday's wedding. he's been defending her since
7:02 am
he was 21. >> presumably the chelsea you know is very different from the one in the papers that does irritate you. >> it does irritate me because obviously i get to see how upset she gets. i know the real her. >> chelsea and harry have got passion written all over them. when those two are together they want to rip each other's clothes off and get on with it. >> couric: but harry does have a serious side. he's a captain and pilot in the british army and has spent time in afghanistan. >> no one really knows where i am. i prefer to keep it that way. >> reporter: he also recently joined wounded british soldiers on a fund-raising trip to the north pole. and harry is in fact very eferp empathetic, according to bradby, who traveled with him in 2004 to south africa to help aids orphan theirs. >> when he cares about he cares about very, very much.
7:03 am
>> it was a country we chose because of the fact that it wasn't even on the map and the problems it has with aids. >> couric: while there harry poignantly talked of carrying on his mother's work. >> this is a chance to carry on what she left behind really. >> couric: those who knew princess diana well like richard kay said she believed harry would make the better king. >> she felt she knew william's character better than any that william was not cut out to be king and harry whom she used to call good king harry will be better suited to the role. things have changed. i mean william is a very different young man from the one that was around in 1997. >> couric: and there is little doubt that had princess diana lived to see this day, she would be extremely proud of both her sons.

>> it's sunday morning on cbs and here again is charles osgood. >> osgood: carry grant had to run quickly and boldly in that famous crop duster scene in the film north by northwest but when it came to caring for his young daughter he was patient and gentle as could be. rita braver now on a genuine hollywood legend. >> do you know what's wrong with you? >> no, what? >> nothing. >> reporter: he is the definition of debonair. 25 years after his death, 45 years after his last film, carry grant still delights us with his style, his dry wit and his comic timing. turns out off screen he was
7:07 am
also a great dad. what do you want the world to know about carry grant that we don't know. >> that the persona, the charm was real. it wasn't some mask. >> reporter: jennifer grant is cary's only child. his daughter with fourth wife actress diane cannon. the couple separated shortly after jennifer's birth in 1966 and carry grant, then 62, retired from films. in large part to help raise his daughter. it was a family that stayed out of the public eye. >> i was trained to be private. by a man who learned to keep his private life private. >> reporter: but now she's written a book about life with dad. good stock. why does that phrase have
7:08 am
special meaning for you? >> he used that phrase whenever he was pleased or he just... just "good stuff." >> reporter: and a lot of that good stuff revolved around jennifer. he kept a huge archive for her. there are photos. >> yeah, that was in beverly hills. i love his pink shirt. >> reporter: congratulatory notes on jennifer's birth. that one is from audrey hepburn. this from grace kelly. he still made movies, home movies. these show a carry grant you've never seen before. >> i like to make up dances and things at home. i suppose i learned to square dance somewhere and i thought we could do it. so he joined in. >> reporter: he even recorded phone conversations capturing
7:09 am
jennifer's baby talk. >> hello, my love. >> (inaudible) >> that's true. >> (inaudible) >> that's exactly right. >> reporter: it's almost as if he were making up for his own miserable childhood in bristol, england. the boy who started out as archibald leach, his mom institutionalized, his dad neglectful. he should have ran away from home to join an acrobatic troupe. >> he was quite young he became an acrobat and came to new york with that troupe. that's where he learned gymnastics. >> reporter: director and film historian peter bog done veitch who became friends with grant says he made good use of his gymnastics training when he got to hollywood. in films like 1937's the awful truth. that screwball comedy made grant a comic star.
7:10 am
>> wait a minute. >> and then he did wings in 1939 and that made him a dramatic star. >> i don't know how you can act like this. >> he's dead. >> yes, he's dead. >> that's right. he's been dead about 20 minutes. all the weeping in the world won't make him any deader 20 years from now. >> nobody like him before or since. >> this is a dream from which i never wake up. >> reporter: grant found success early in his career in blonde venus with marlenea dietrich and then there's this classic scene from "she done him wrong" with mae west. >> why don't you come up some stim and see me. i'm home every evening. >> but i'm busy every evening. >> reporter: but bogdonveitch said it took a while to perfect the urbane, unflappable carry grant image. do you think he understood his own magnetism, he understood
7:11 am
the effect he had when he was on screen? >> oh, i think so. he honed his personality. he took a little bit from every person he worked with. until he had found this persona that he created. >> reporter: grant knew it was a persona. bogdonveitch remembers when he and girlfriend sybil shepherd went to an event with grant. as they approached the ticket taker.... >> he said i'm terribly sorry. i forgot my ticket. can i get in please. she doesn't look up. name. carry grant. now he looks up and said you don't look like carry grant. quick as a win being. he goes, i know. nobody does. >> i know i look vaguely familiar. >> yes. >> reporter: carry grant was hollywood's favorite leading man. in north by northwest with eva marie saint.... >> this is a very strange love affair. >> why? >> reporter: notorious with ingrid bergman.
7:12 am
>> maybe the fact that you don't love me. >> reporter: the philadelphia story. one of four films with katharine hepburn. you write quite frankly in the book that you were a little jealous of all the people who got to be in movies with him. >> yes. >> perfect. >> we were watching an affair to remember in our friend's living room in the hamptons and the first time i saw him kiss on screen, and i was really little. i jumped off the couch and i said stormed over the tv and i slapped her cheek. >> reporter: deborah karr. >> nobody was going to kiss my daddy. i didn't even know this woman. what was she doing kissing my father? >> reporter: jennifer says she was too young to understand the explosive headlines and ugly custody battle that came with her parents' divorce. she was aware of recurring whispers that her father was gay or by sexual.
7:13 am
>> it is sort of strange because i never felt anything like that from him. i spent all my time with him. i think that's the oddest thing. >> reporter: when grant wanted to propose to his fifth wife barbara harris, he asked jennifer's approval. >> i said, you know, i'd like to marry barbara, what do you think? i was thrilled for him. i think it freed me up in a way because i had always felt like the main person in dad's life. suddenly there was someone else. >> reporter: despite pleas from bogdonveitch and others, carry grant never returned to making movies. >> he used to joke that he didn't want to watch himself grow old on screen. i also feel like he was done. >> reporter: grant was nominated for two academy awards. he lost both times. but in 1970 he got a lifetime achievement oscar. and jennifer was right behind
7:14 am

7:16 am
these cranberries over here. >> osgood: president obama this past week made public his so-called long form. after hawaii officials granted his request for its release. some thoughts about the birth certificate controversy now from contributor travis smiley. >> gerald ford once famously said our long national nightmare is over. those words uttered more than 35 years ago in the wake of watergate can certainly be used this week to sum up the final followy that was the birther issue. how is it possible in this hyper informed age of information that our public discourse can be hijacked by something conceived of such ignorance?
7:17 am
the drum beat of foolish factually challenged and thoroughly uneducated rhetoric that defined this debate demeaned our national dialogue at a time when serious and sober conversation is so desperately needed: jobs, health care, the ongoing wars, the deficit and the conversation about national priorities are the pressing issues of our time. instead we allowed a small uninformed minority and one publicity star reality tv purveyor to lead us down a slippery slope regardless of the motives behind the birther movement political gain, ignorance or something even more sinister, the issue struck some of us as more than a little curious given that it involved a black man whose name does not sound so typically american. questioning this president's birth amounted to a frontal assault on his legitimacy. his character and his very being. it was a few tile attempt to undo his inspiring personal narrative, something as americans we should all celebrate and not denigrate.
7:18 am
my friend dr. cornell west puts it this way. we need to respect the president. we need to protect the president. and when necessary we need to correct the president. holding this or any president accountable on important issues is our right and our duty as american citizens. but when we allow falsehoods to trump the truth, real accountability gets lost in the fictional fall. and what has this moment taught us about the notion of civility? i was moved as i'm sure you were to see congresswoman gabby giffords make her way to florida from a hospital in houston to attend the launch of the space shuttle carrying her husband mark kelly. it reminded all of us that the tragic incident in arizona was to be a national wake-up call about the tone of our public discourse. sadly those who cynically slam at the bottom of the birther barrel dealt civility a terrible blow but perhaps there is a take away from the birther debate. as someone once said you're entitled to your own opinions
7:19 am
not your own facts. let's have a vigor ougs debate between now and november 2012 about the future course of our country. and let's remember that politics may determine who has the power, but not the truth. >> osgood: next bill geist goes pole watching.

7:23 am
opera, lectures and jazz. the competition was held under the auspices of the u.s. pole dance federation. started by wendy and anna. >> this is more pole fitness. an art form, an athletic heart form is what this is. >> you have to keep your clothes on. no talking to the audience. >> no vulgar music. no excessive booty shaking. >> reporter: this is the new pole dancing. but perhaps as a tip to the cap of the pole dancing pioneers for the compulsory rounds they kept the high heels which range from 5 to 8 inches. this woman is working her way up in this booming business. are you in the competition today? >> i am not. i am cleaning the poles. after every girl performs. >> reporter: pole cleaner. a vocation we hadn't heard of.
7:24 am
11 glittering pole dancers competed in the top tier. the crowd cheering on the sultry contortionists. women who can hang upsidedown on a pole held aloft by the mere touch of a thigh surely cannot be the same species that's me. the winner was natasha wang who performed a pole dance rendition of swan lake. no one tried to stuff a dollar bill between her feathers. and the u.s. pole dance championship looked like it belonged to sympathy space, a performing arts center.
