(Studio) Hallowed British institution of nannies still endures.
REPORTER: Dan Rather

(London, Eng.) At Norland Nursery College women train to be nannies. [College principal Betty MEDD - teaches class.] During 18 month course women attend classes on child development and psych. Children from area cared for by students. [Retired nanny Violette TURNER - says in old days children hardly saw parents. Children under constant supervision of nanny and often preferred nanny to parents.] Nanny Everest, Winston Churchill's nanny, maybe more responsible for Winston's personality than parents. Clare Neal, nanny for children of Mrs. James Hamilton, much like old nannies, only better trained and from better background. [Mrs. HAMILTON - says prefers having nanny so can do other things besides care for her children.] Being a nanny today is a lucrative profession, and demand greater than supply.
