ATHENS, GA (March 15, 2016) – The life of legendary video photojournalist Darrell Barton was celebrated over the weekend in Edmond, OK. 

One of the highlights of the weekend was sharing a video, "Darrell Barton: Behind The Scenes at 48 Hours." Barton was sometimes called "the Oracle of 48 Hours," because the reporters and producers knew that he could make magic come to life in their stories.

"Darrell was a man defined by his work, but more importantly, by his heart," former CBS News anchor and friend Dan Rather said. 

"He had a heart the size of a locomotive. Our hearts are breaking now because he's left us. But you know Darrell would never want tears. He would want us to celebrate his life, laugh about the memories, and never forget that face."

"Darrell Barton: Behind The Scenes at 48 Hours" is a story every journalist will appreciate and enjoy and laugh along with. Enjoy it here with us.
