Over the Rainbow | Batson 24 / 7 

Produced by Jim Albritton | At Batson Children's Hospital the one constant is time. Morning rounds at 7 a.m. A heliport that never closes. Pediatric ambulances ready at a moment's notice. Newborns in a minute-by-minute struggle for life. A surgery waiting room where time seemingly stands still. And a staff that constantly tries to separate hours-on from hours-off. These are their stories: Batson 24/7.

Photos of Magnolia, Mississippi

Knowing that the approaching New Orleans, Jackson, and Great Northern Railroad would need a station for water and fuel, plantation owner Ansel H. Prewett founded Magnolia, Mississippi in 1856. Magnolia grew rapidly in the 1860s, and in the late 19th century Magnolia served as a popular small-town resort for wealthy New Orleanians who took trains north from the city to enjoy Magnolia's fresh air and sparkling creeks. At one time early Magnolia boasted an opera house, skating rink and several hotels that catered largely to these tourists.
