Southern Man of Mystery: Edgar Allan Poe (37 mins)

This premiere edition of Central Virginia Biographies takes you into the world of “America’s Shakespeare,” Edgar Allan Poe. The brilliant but troubled writer is credited with mastering the genre of science fiction, detective fiction, and the horror story, in addition to creating mesmerizing poetry and establishing the format of the short story. The legendary author of The Raven, The Tell-Tale Heart and The Fall of the House of Usher grew up in Richmond, and considered himself a Virginian wherever his travels led him. Take a poetic journey back in time with HCTV’s Southern Man of Mystery: Edgar Allan Poe.

Soaring Free: Bird Watching in Henrico (24 mins)

Bird watching in Henrico can be fascinating for people of all ages. Hundreds of different species can be found in the county alone, and their beauty, quirky behavior and mysterious habits make them a wonder to behold.

Paving Ahead: Building & Maintaining Roads in Henrico County (14 mins)

Henrico’s Public Works Department maintains more than 3,400 lane miles of roadways, typically resurfacing or repaving about 150 miles of roads each year. Because our crews survey the roads year round and prioritize paving work, our residents enjoy the ability to drive throughout the county on safe, well-maintained roadways. Join us as HCTV explores how the process works and what’s involved in Paving Ahead: Building & Maintaining Roads in Henrico County.

Never Forget III: Schantz-Ripka Cold Case (29 mins)

On February 11, 1998 Allen Ripka and Shelly Schantz were brutally murdered in their western Henrico home. Henrico investigators had never seen a crime scene that lacked such vital forensic evidence, and after following every plausible lead, the crime remains unsolved. Henrico Police have not forgotten this double homicide, but they need the community’s help to bring closure to two families and a murderer to justice.

Water, Clean and Clear: Henrico’s Water Treatment Facility (17 mins)

A safe water supply is vital to our community. Henrico’s Water Treatment Facility is committed to supplying our residents with the safest, cleanest water in the region. Join HCTV as we follow the process from the raw product extracted from the James River, to the refined, crystal clear water delivered to Henrico homes and businesses in Water, Clean and Clear: Henrico’s Water Treatment Facility.

All Aboard! The History of the Richmond, Fredericksburg & Potomac Railroad (27 mins)

— The Richmond, Fredericksburg & Potomac Railroad was the sixth railroad to be chartered in the commonwealth, receiving exclusive rights from the General Assembly to connect Richmond and Fredericksburg to the Potomac River steamboat lines. RF&P played a key role in the Civil War and World War II, after which it modernized from steam engines to diesel locomotives. Over the course of its 157-year history the company acquired significant amounts of property along its route, including a number of acres in Henrico County — land that is now home to Glen Allen Stadium at RF&P Park. Though its trains no longer run through the heart of Virginia, the RF&P remains embedded in the history of the communities it touched and in the imagination of the people it served.

The Decision: Aging Out of the Foster Care System (23 mins)

At the age of 18 young adults in the foster care system must make a daunting decision: opt out of foster care now, or age out at 21 and receive benefits to help transition into adulthood. HCTV features four young adults who share their struggles and successes, as well as their decisions to opt out or stay in foster care. Join us as we hear their stories, and learn what foster care professionals say about remaining in the system until age 21.

Ringing the Bell: Police and Fire Chaplains of Henrico County (17 mins)

Police and Fire chaplains are volunteer ministers who provide pastoral care and spiritual support to the first responders and residents of Henrico County. Whether it’s helping officers deal with stress on the job, or helping someone from the community through a difficult time, their compassion and gentle care can be invaluable during a crisis.

Connecting Communities: The Bridges of Henrico (16 mins)

The Huguenot, Willey, Varina-Enon and Pocahontas Parkway bridges keep our communities connected, spur commerce and growth, and serve as icons or symbols of the county. These four modern marvels of engineering science serve as gateways to Henrico, and are vital to the 21st century transportation network that moves the county and the region.

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 horse racing’s Triple Crown — breaking the track record at all three events. 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.

A Unified Plan: Behind the Scenes with Police and Fire at Richmond International Raceway (20 mins)

Each spring and fall, the largest spectator sporting event in Virginia takes place right here in Henrico County, at Richmond International Raceway. NASCAR draws enormous crowds, and with an event this big you can bet many months of planning goes on behind the scenes. Learn how Henrico’s public safety agencies work closely with RIR staff to ensure a safe, healthy, fan-friendly experience every time in A Unified Plan: Behind the Scenes with Police and Fire at Richmond International Raceway.

Native Fish Species of the James River (39 mins)

During the 17th century the James River was silver with the Shad, Herring & Sturgeon populations. Over time, residential and commercial development, overfishing and habitat changes decimated these native species, but innovative repopulation and rehabilitation programs are now underway to replenish the river. Join HCTV as we explore how our actions and the environment have affected the fish quality, and learn whether it is, indeed, safe to eat fish from the James, in Native Fish Species of the James River.

Emergency Preparedness: Are You Ready? (23 mins)

Hurricanes, flooding, tornadoes, thunderstorms, ice storms, and even earthquakes are year-round threats in Henrico County. Being prepared for emergencies can be as easy as having a plan, staying informed, and knowing what to do when disasters occur. Join HCTV as we learn from the experts how to survive severe weather emergencies.

Raymond Bennett Pinchbeck: The Good Neighbor (28 mins)

The students at Pinchbeck Elementary School are known as the Rays — for good reason. The school’s name and mascot come from Raymond B. Pinchbeck, a man who served his community locally and nationally. As a Henrico School Board member, a Dean at the University of Richmond and a lieutenant in the U.S. Navy, Pinchbeck brightened lives throughout the community and inspired a character in the popular 1970s television series The Waltons.

A Safe Place to Learn: Henrico’s School Resource Officers (14 mins)

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. Join HCTV as we talk to the officers and learn how they mentor, guide and protect Henrico’s students.

The Henrico Victim/Witness Assistance Program (15 mins)

When a serious crime occurs in Henrico, the Commonwealth’s Attorney’s Office and Police work together to prosecute criminals to the fullest extent of the law. Crime victims and witnesses are essential in bringing offenders to justice, and advocates in the Victim/Witness Assistance Program support them throughout the process. Advocates are committed 24-hours-a-day to advise in legal matters, provide protection and offer counseling to help victims and witnesses get through this difficult time.
