Understanding and Preventing Elder Abuse (15 mins)

Each year hundreds of thousands of seniors are abused, neglected and exploited in the United States. Many elder victims are frail, unable to care for themselves and depend on others to meet their most basic needs. Henrico’s Adult Protective Services works with public and private agencies to stop the mistreatment of the county’s elderly population. Join HCTV as we highlight the services that help detect, investigate, prosecute and prevent elder abuse cases.

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

You Are Not Alone: Breaking the Stigma of Mental Illness (27 mins)

We’ve all known someone with mental health challenges, whether it be a family member, coworker, friend or have had struggles ourselves. Until recently, “recovery” was seldom uttered in the same sentence with “mental illness,” but times are changing. We’ve come a long way from the mental institutions and sanitariums of a generation ago, but the shackles of stigma still remain. In 2011, Henrico Area Mental Health and Developmental Services launched an innovative campaign to combat the stigma of mental illness and granted HCTV full access to the process.

We’ll take you from candle-lit Christmas carols at Meadow Farm to some of the most decked out, decorated homes around. Embrace all the splendor of the season in A Henrico Holiday.

Historic Henrico Churches: Windows to Our Past (28 mins)

From those early days at Henricus to today’s ever-changing communities, historic churches are the windows to our past. Join HCTV as we explore the culture, heritage, and architecture of these celebrated places of worship.

Henrico’s Iron: Ironclad Battles on the James River (25 mins)

The James River in eastern Henrico County serves as a watery grave for three mighty ships from the Civil War. Today, the CSS Richmond, Virginia II and Fredericksburg remain casualties from the James River Squadron and footnotes to America’s struggle to unite its North and South. But during the War, they marked an advanced breed of armored ship. They were Ironclads that forever changed naval combat. HCTV uncovers the untold story of Henrico’s maritime combats during the Civil War in Henrico’s Iron: Ironclad Battles on the James River.

Airwaves of Yesteryear: Early Television in Central Virginia (30 mins)

On April 22, 1948 the very first television broadcast south of our nation’s capital happened right here in Central Virginia.

Evolution of flight has taken more than a century. Throughout the years, many of the discoveries made that have shaped the industry have come from one small corner of the world. From streamlining the early warbirds of World War II, to improving the capabilities of today’s supersonic stealth fighters, the story of modern aviation cannot be told without the pilots, researchers and enthusiasts right here in Virginia. Join HCTV as we lead you through aircraft innovation in Taking Flight: Stories of Modern Virginia Aviation.

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.
