On the Green: Belmont Golf Course (25 mins)

Henrico County’s Belmont Golf Course was first established in 1917 as Hermitage Country Club on Hilliard Road. The golf course hosted such prestigious events as the Valentine Invitational, The Richmond Open, and the 1949 PGA Championship. Henrico purchased the property in 1977 and named the golf course Belmont. The 18-hole course is open to the public, and is one of the area’s finest recreational venues. Join HCTV as we meet the golfers and explore the history, fun and challenges of the course in On the Green: Belmont Golf Course.

An Evolving Legend: The Story of Robert E. Lee (38 mins)

The mere mention of Robert E. Lee conjures up the image of a gray-haired, gray-bearded, gray-suited Confederate General, forever trapped in an 1865 photograph or in a bronze and stone monument. In reality, the Civil War was only four years of his multifaceted, fascinating life, and he was infinitely more complex than the icon he has become. In death, Robert E. Lee still commands attention. He will inevitably fascinate and divide opinion as long as his story continues to unfold. Join HCTV as we explore the controversial figure in An Evolving Legend: The Story of Robert E. Lee.

Birds of the James (26 mins)

We’ve all marveled at the majesty of Bald Eagles, Ospreys, Double-Crested Cormorants, and Great Blue Herons — truly a natural resource to behold.

Join HCTV as we get up close to the birds of the James River, and learn how they are part of the wonderful natural environment that surrounds us.

Hometown Hero: Arthur Ashe, Jr. (28 mins)

Join HCTV as we explore the man behind the tennis racket, and learn about how he used his notoriety to help the people of Richmond, especially children.

Henrico representatives, local developers and business owners tell us why Henrico’s Reinvest Program is a positive proposition for everyone involved.

Henrico County is committed to providing its public schools with a safe learning environment. That’s why specially trained police officers are assigned to work in each elementary, middle and high school. These school resource officers partner with school security officers, administrators and teachers, but they do far more than maintain order.

Learning the Henrico Way: Inside the County’s Internship Program (18 mins)

The lessons learned by students in the classroom are important building blocks for a career after graduation, but experience gained after the school bell rings is irreplaceable.

Join HCTV as we explore Henrico’s internship program and see how our future leaders are learning the Henrico Way.

Virginia: The Mother of Presidents (41 mins)

Virginia is known as the Mother of Presidents for good reason: more United States presidents hail from this great state than any other.

Each played a vital role in the formation of our country and our democratic form of government. These insightful and experienced leaders guided our country through times of war and peace, and helped shape the United States of America.
