FINE PRINT: Man of Action

Best-selling thriller writer Ken Follett, known for such world-wide hits as "The Eye of the Needle" and "A Key to Rebecca," has written a sequel to his historical novel "The Pillars of the Earth." His new book, "World Without End" is about what it took in Medieval England to construct and maintain a cathedral while the Black Plague was raging. Correspondent Anthony Mason visit Westminster Abbey with Follett and enters that distant era. But Follett is also fully engaged in the politics of today, with his wife Barbara both a Member of Pariliament and the Minister for East England. We get an unexpected and unique insight into the political worlds of both modern and medieval England.



Lynn Cheney is married to one of the most powerful and most controversial men in American politics, Vice President Dick Cheney. "A terrific guy," she says, dismayed by his critics. In her latest book"Blue Skies, No Fences,"-Mrs. Cheney takes the reader, and our correspondent Rita Braver, to Casper, Wyoming. There, in the 1950's, this state baton twirling champion fell for the captain of the football team. He would become a Congressman, Secretary of Defense, and finally George W. Bush's Vice President. She also takes Rita Braver on a tour of the Vice President's Residence in Washington, DC. Not just the living and dining rooms where they entertain the Capitol's powerful, but also their private rooms where the Cheney's relax, watch television, write books, and entertain their grand children.

In her interview, Mrs. Cheney is a staunch defender of the U.S. invasion of Iraq, George Bush and her husband.

She also says that while she grew up in a segregated world, she learned from her mother: "it doesn't matter if we're different in some ways. Underneath people are just people. " A rule that holds "whatever differences we might be talking about whether it's race, gender, or sexual orientation."

GEIST: Unforgettable

This Summer the Philadelphia Zoo decided to close down its elephant exhibit, citing lack of money. One problem: what do you do with Dulary, the Asian elephant who had lived at the Zoo for 43 years? Like many Americans she didn't have a 401 K-plan or a pension. In the pachyderm world there is really only one solution: the 2700 -acre Elephant Sanctuary in Central Tennessee. Correspondent Bill Geist follows Dulary's trip to this elephant paradise where circus and zoo elephants find there are no cages and no chains. Instead co-founders Carol Buckley and Scott Blais await with open arms, a little hard to do with an elephant.
