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.

In the Hot Zone: Henrico’s Hazardous Incident Team (25 mins)

Henrico’s Hazardous Incident Team is ready to respond to any chemical, fuel or biological release that threatens the health and safety of Central Virginia residents. The highly-skilled fire fighters at Henrico’s Station 21 rely on their training and experience to respond to any HAZMAT situation. Join HCTV as we learn more about this specialized unit and its unprecedented reputation throughout our region.

Taking to the Sky: First Ladies of Aviation (26 mins)

In 1903, the Wright Brothers harnessed the mystery of flight. Male-dominated American aviators began to explore the skies and capture the imagination. But before long, women stepped forward with their own spirit of adventure. Join HCTV as we meet Martha C. West, Genevieve Krimm Orange and Maude “Maxine” Walker who found their passion for flying and a desire to go beyond the traditional roles expected of women.

Strumming up the Past: Henrico’s Bluegrass Music (24 mins)

Bluegrass represents a distinctly American style of music, a beautiful blend of old-timey, Celtic, gospel, country and blues. Henrico County is keeping the music alive by organizing a bluegrass jam each month at Dorey Park. If you’ve stood before the microphone and or clapped from the audience, you know there’s something about bluegrass that tugs on your soul.

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.

Lewis Ginter: A Quiet Contribution (31 mins)

Lewis Ginter is probably best known in our area for the botanical garden bearing his name. Located in Henrico County, Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden is but one of the many contributions Ginter made to the Metro Richmond area with the help of his niece, Grace Arents. Although Metro Richmond was a home Ginter adopted, he profoundly changed the landscape and quality of life through his fascinating and diverse business ventures.

Driving Force: Henrico’s Traffic Safety Unit (27 mins)

Frozen in Time: The Ruins of the James River Steam Brewery (23 mins)

The arched cellar entrance of David Yuengling Junior’s once mighty James River Steam Brewery is a portal to an amazing tale that lies buried in a Rocketts Landing hillside, nearly forgotten for a century. The mysterious facade bears no trace of the famous name or the tumultuous times during which an American staple, lager beer, was produced on a massive scale right here in Henrico County. Join HCTV for a journey into the cellars and back in time.

Paving Ahead (13 mins)

From the heavily traveled thoroughfares, to the cul-de-sac you call home, Henrico’s Public Works employees take pride in the way you ride. We’ll explain why sometimes all you need is a slick coat of slurry, and other traffic patterns demand a steamy layer of asphalt. Take a ride on the roller with HCTV as we heat, mill, seal and smooth the surface of Henrico’s roads, in Paving Ahead.

Henrico’s Wild Side: Living with the Creatures Among Us (16 mins)

From foxes, skunks and deer to raccoons, opossums and even black bears, Henrico County residents may encounter wild life at any given time, even in their own backyards. Join HCTV as we talk to the Police Animal Control Officers to find out how they work with wild animals, what we should do if we happen upon them and how we can all learn to coexist in Henrico’s Wild Side: Living with the Creatures Among Us.

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.
