Pocahontas: The Myth and Mystery of an Icon (34 mins)

Although more than 400 years have passed since she stepped into history, Pocahontas continues to capture the imagination of people everywhere.

MONEY: The Evolution of Currency in America (25 mins)

Is there anything more American than the dollar bill? Today it is instantly recognized around the world and universally accepted as payment for just about anything. But American currency traveled a long and colorful course over several centuries before it became the global force we know today. Its development is intertwined with the nation’s history, and its evolution continues. Join HCTV as we explore the progressive phases of our legal tender in MONEY: The Evolution of Currency in America.

Boston: The Story of a Racehorse (20 mins)

In the realm of horseracing greats, one thoroughbred from Virginia stands out: Secretariat. In 1973, as a 3-year-old, he won horseracing’s Triple Crown — a feat that went unmatched for another 42 years. But more than a century before Secretariat rewrote the record book, another stallion from central Virginia became known far and wide for his speed, stamina — and vicious temperament. This horse — born in Henrico County and named Boston — is part of an ancestral line that produced Secretariat and other notable horses. Join HCTV as we look into his life, victories and defeats in Boston: The Story of a Racehorse.

Haunted Henrico: Are Ghosts Dwelling in Historic County Properties? (23 mins)

Is it simply folklore, or is it paranormal? Imagination, or science? Most of us have heard ghost stories throughout our lives, and we love to be intrigued and even scared by the tales of mystical spirits among us. Henrico’s history goes back centuries, and many colorful characters have passed through the county leaving their legacies behind — but did they leave? Walkerton, Dabbs House and Meadow Farm are three of the county’s historic properties dating back to the early 1800s, all of them having their fair share of ghost stories and reported sightings. Join HCTV as we explore the phenomenon in Haunted Henrico: Are Ghosts Dwelling in Historic County Properties?

Faith, Smiles and Public Service: The Story of Dr. Jacob L. Adams (16 mins)

Jacob L. Adams Elementary School sits along Laburnum Avenue in Henrico’s East End. Opened in 1967, the school is named for Dr. Jacob L. Adams, a former member and Chair of the Henrico School Board and a beloved dentist in the Highland Springs area. An active community member, Adams was devoted to his local church, his patients, and his family. While serving on the School Board from 1945 to 1963, Dr. Adams oversaw a period of significant growth with the addition of 30 new public schools. Join HCTV as we shed light on Jacob L. Adams’ Highland Springs legacy.

Safely Rest: The Saga of Taps, An American Bugle Call (27 mins)

Taps, the unmistakable bugle melody that has signaled day’s end for our military for more than 150 years, is perhaps best known as a song of mourning and as the final tribute at funerals for service members. While the twenty-four deceptively simple notes are easily recognizable, their origin is much more complex. Join HCTV for a musical journey that spans the Eastern Henrico Civil War battles in the summer of 1862, and the creation of Taps at Berkeley Plantation soon thereafter, to Arlington National Cemetery where it is played an average of thirty times a day.

Never Forget: Cynthia Gilliam-Ford Cold Case (21 mins)

In January of 1991 Henrico Police discovered human skeletal remains wrapped in a blanket in a wooded area of the county. Evidence at the scene could not help identify the victim or lead police to a suspect. Nearly two decades later, a facial reconstruction sketch released to the media proved to be the key in uncovering the identity of this Jane Doe. Police are now hot on the trail of her killer and they need your help to find the murderer of Cynthia Gilliam-Ford. Never Forget.

Alzheimer’s Disease: The Longest Goodbye (23 mins)

Alzheimer’s disease is the sixth leading cause of death in the United States. There is no known cause, and no cure. Alzheimer’s takes a devastating toll on those diagnosed with the disease and their families. Join HCTV as we hear people living with Alzheimer’s, family members, health professionals and advocates tell us how they cope with this progressive illness in Alzheimer’s Disease: The Longest Goodbye.

Open for Business: How to Start Up in Henrico (16 mins)

Henrico is open for business, and we know our corporate neighbors — large and small — enhance our community and quality of life. Our strong business climate is due in part to the ease with which local entrepreneurs can get established. Henrico agencies work with our start-up business owners to make the process fast and user-friendly. Join HCTV as we walk through the process and meet some business owners who turned their enterprise ideas into reality right here in Henrico.

A Day in the Life: A Reenactment of the Battle at New Market Heights (21 mins)

On September 29, 1864, on fields south of New Market Road, African-American soldiers serving in the U.S. Colored Troops led an assault against Richmond’s outer ring of defenses. One-hundred fifty years later, Henrico County brought the day back to life. More than 100 acres of Henrico farmland were transformed into the New Market Heights battlefield. Nearly 1,000 reenactors traveled from around the country to recreate the battle of New Market Heights. Watch how Henrico County bears witness — both then and now — to a significant moment in American history.

Forging Freedom: The Story of Gabriel’s Rebellion (29 mins)

Were it not for a typical late summer storm in Central Virginia, the events planned for August 30, 1800 might have changed the history of our country forever. A slave named Gabriel, owned by Thomas Henry Prosser of Brookfield plantation, conceived and organized a widespread slave uprising. Involving several Virginia localities, it was possibly the most far-reaching slave uprising planned in the history of the South. The plan might have succeeded had it not been for a sudden, severe downpour and the disclosure of the plot by several slaves, including Tom and Pharoah, who belonged to Mosby Sheppard of Meadow Farm. The alarm went out and the rebellion was thwarted. The effects of the conspiracy were profound and as a result, county and state leaders instituted legislation to regulate the movement of slaves and free blacks. Join HCTV as we tell the story of Gabriel and the failed insurrection in Forging Freedom: The Story of Gabriel’s Rebellion.
