Ask the Question: Suicide Prevention (19 mins)

Suicide is the 10th leading cause of death in the United States. It most often occurs when stressors exceed the coping abilities of someone suffering from a mental health condition. Join HCTV as we talk to suicide prevention advocates, survivors and Henrico mental health professionals who encourage people to speak up if someone close to them appears distressed. Ask the Question. It can save lives.

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.

From the Mines of Henrico: The Beginnings of Our Nation’s Coal Industry (21 mins)

Coal has been used as an energy source worldwide for thousands of years. In the United States, the coal industry originated on the banks of the James River and mines right here in Henrico County. Join HCTV as we document the industry’s rise and fall, and see what remains today of Henrico’s often overlooked coal history.

Starting Over: Refugee Resettlement in Henrico (18 mins)

Imagine being forced to relocate your family to a foreign country because you fear for your life. There are more than 19 million refugees in the world today, and approximately 2,400 of them resettle in Virginia each year. Starting over in a region unknown can be overwhelming, but the Henrico Resettlement Program is ready to assist. Whether it’s access to health care, school enrollment, or learning the English language, the people of Henrico are prepared to help ease the transition for refugees.

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. Whether in high school or college, internships prepare students for the workforce in ways a textbook can’t. Join HCTV as we explore Henrico’s internship program and see how our future leaders are learning the Henrico Way.

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.

Going Up? The History and Evolution of the Modern Elevator (18 mins)

Elevators provide a fast, practical way to move in our daily lives. The elevator — or “lift” as it’s known in some parts of the world — was not originally designed with people in mind. They carried materials and freight for industry. However, elevators quickly became a selling point for hotels and helped bring about modern skyscrapers, including the Empire State Building. Join HCTV as we look at the evolution of the modern elevator and how Henrico’s Department of Building Inspections ensures our county’s elevators are safe and sound.

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.

The First Pitch: History of the Tuckahoe Little League (18 mins)

In the late 1950s baseball became America’s favorite pastime, and it was every young boy’s dream to play the game. For the kids in Henrico, there was no organized league that would allow them to play—until a group of fathers joined forces to form the Tuckahoe Little League. Through the years, the league has prospered and multiple generations of boys and girls have experienced baseball and softball on first-class fields. The tradition continues today, and HCTV takes you back to those glory years in The First Pitch: History of the Tuckahoe Little League.

Crystal Clear: Henrico County Water Reclamation Facility (21 mins)

Each time we do a load of laundry, take a shower, flush the toilet or wash our hands, we produce wastewater that seems to magically disappear through unseen pipes. In fact, in Henrico County, we produce more than 42 million gallons of wastewater every day. This wastewater must be cleaned, treated and prepared before reentering our environment through the James River. Join HCTV as we tour the high tech (if sometimes smelly) Water Reclamation Facility where this fascinating process takes place. From the natural use of nutrient eating organisms to the multi-step treatment process, Henrico’s Water Reclamation Facility makes sure the water returned to the James is crystal clear.

The History of Gravel Hill (16 mins)

Gravel Hill sits tucked away in eastern Henrico County, bearing only humble monuments to its extraordinary history. Among the rustic surroundings are a scattering of modest homes, a small church and an old school building. The community dates back to 1771, and has persevered against the odds due to grit, determination, self-reliance and pride. Join HCTV as we tell this remarkable story of one of the first African-American communities in the nation.

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.

Still in the Game: Adult Sports in Henrico (18 mins)

Softball, Rugby, Basketball, Ultimate Frisbee, Cricket, Kickball, Golf, Lacrosse and more. . . whatever the game, adults in Henrico looking for a way to stay active and competitive turn to Henrico’s Adult Sports Leagues. Our Division of Recreation and Parks maintains pristine fields and organized scheduling to assist adult league players throughout their sport season. HCTV follows the action in Still in the Game: Adult Sports in Henrico.

Underage Drinking: Adult Consequences (17 mins)

Keeping alcohol out of the hands of underage drinkers is a team effort. Parents, school officials, law enforcement and community partners have joined together to teach tweens to twenties about the health risks and legal consequences that can result from a moment of poor judgment. HCTV talks to the experts about the steps they are taking to keep our young people safe.

Bullying (20 mins)

More than 13 million kids will be bullied in the U.S. this year. HCTV explores why bullying occurs and what our community can do to combat this disturbing social issue. Henrico County’s commonwealth’s attorney, school resource officers, guidance counselors, principals and young people speak about their experiences and why bullying is on the rise in our country.

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 Elko Files: History and Mystery in Eastern Henrico (21 mins)

The Elko tract in eastern Henrico County is a place where you can’t always believe what you see. It’s also a place of purpose, reinvention and promise. What remains today has been called a “lost city,” and much has been speculated about its past. The Elko name marks a middle school and a community center, and with land for further development, the tract remains a vital part of Henrico’s plan for the future. Join HCTV as we explore the mysteries and misunderstandings of the Elko Files.

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. 

A New Beginning: Inside Henrico Drug Court (19 mins)

Henrico County Drug Court is a structured, four-phase program designed to reduce crime and recidivism among substance abuse offenders. Drug Court works to intervene and rehabilitate participants so they can live clean and sober lives. Join HCTV as we delve inside Drug Court, meet the people who make it work and watch the addicts strive to succeed.
