Standing Tall: Native Trees of Henrico County (25 mins)

From majestic oaks to loblolly pines, the native trees of Henrico not only enhance the natural beauty of the county and provide a habitat for animals, they play a vital part in the ecology of our environment. Join HCTV as we learn about the variety of native trees in our area and the role they play in the cycle of life.

Uncovering the Truth: Polygraph Use in Henrico County (17 mins)

How can you tell when a person is lying? Oftentimes, his or her body will provide a clue — a quick pulse, sweaty palms and stammering speech. For the better part of a century, police have interviewed suspected criminals using machines designed to help separate fact from fiction. These polygraphs — or lie detectors — have become an important investigative tool for law-enforcement agencies, including the Henrico County Police Division. But polygraphs have limited use and remain controversial, because the science behind them is imprecise.

Mother Maybelle and The Carter Sisters: The Henrico Years (29 mins)

The lilting music of the Carter family sprang from the hills of Southwest Virginia, but it flowered in Henrico County. For about six years during the 1940s, Maybelle Carter and her young daughters – Helen, June and Anita – set roots in Central Virginia. In 1946, they saw their popularity explode when they landed a spot with Richmond’s biggest station – WRVA – and its premier stage for hillbilly fun. The family moved to Henrico in 1947, buying a two-story home on what used to be Mountain Road. Join HCTV as we talk to former friends, classmates and fans to learn about Mother Maybelle and the Carter Sisters during their Henrico years.

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.

Nature’s Artwork: Wildflowers of Central Virginia (21 mins)

One man’s weed is another man’s wildflower, and there are nearly 1,500 varieties of wildflowers right here in central Virginia. Not only are these amazing natural creations a beauty to behold, they are an integral part of the ecosystem. From Cattails and Black-eyed Susans to Cardinal Flowers and Dutchman Breeches, wildflowers pepper our landscape year-round. Join HCTV as we explore these fascinating creations in Nature’s Artwork: Wildflowers of Central Virginia.

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.

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 Piece of Our Past: The Old Henrico County Courthouse and Jail (32 mins)

Long before Henrico’s modern administration and courts complex was built on Parham Road, the center of county government was nestled on a little island in the City of Richmond. Join HCTV as we chronicle more than two and a half centuries since the first Henrico courthouse was built at 22nd and Main, the controversy surrounding the ownership of the property, the gradual relocation of county operations and the ultimate fate of the Victorian marvel that still rests there today.

People In Crisis: Henrico Area Mental Health Crisis Center (21 mins)

Every year in Henrico County more than 30,000 calls are made to the Henrico Area Mental Health Crisis Hotline. Under the emergency services program, this hotline is available for anyone in the county experiencing acute mental stress. Whether callers feel suicidal, are experiencing panic attacks, or are feeling overwhelming depression, the crisis clinicians are there to help. Join HCTV as we hear stories from the professionals who staff this hotline, as well as those who have benefited from the service. If you or someone you love is experiencing significant mental stress and are unable to handle it alone, the crisis line (727-8484) is always there 24 hours a day.

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.

Get Your Game On: Open Gym (14 mins)

Whether your game is pickleball, table tennis, volleyball, badminton or basketball, you can hit the courts in Henrico County’s Open Gym program! Open Gym invites all ages and levels of experience (or inexperience) to get active and healthy without paying for expensive gym memberships or costly fitness classes. Join HCTV as we watch teens to seniors discover the benefits of exercise and meeting new friends in Get Your Game On: Open Gym.

From Investigation to Education: Inside the Office of the Fire Marshal (23 mins)

From finding the source of a fire and enforcing fire laws, to educating school children and inspecting businesses for fire safety, the Office of the Fire Marshal covers a diverse and extensive area of responsibility to ensure the safety of Henrico residents. HCTV follows the Fire Marshals in the field as they investigate for possible arson, train to use firearms, simulate a fire escape for kids, put an accelerant-detecting canine to work and more in From Investigation to Education: Inside the Office of the Fire Marshal.

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.

The Fourth Estate: The Story of the Richmond Times-Dispatch (34 mins)

In 1850 the first edition of The Daily Dispatch was printed providing Richmonders with headline news for a mere penny. More than 150 years and four generations of family publishing later, the Richmond Times-Dispatch continues to roll off the presses 365 days a year. Technology may have changed the way newspapers are printed, but providing local news to central Virginia remains at the heart of this revered local treasure. Join HCTV as we tell the story of “The Fourth Estate.”

Gaining New Territory: Gang Awareness in Henrico (14 mins)

Gangs are no longer a metropolitan or inner-city problem as they gain new territory in suburban communities — they cross racial, ethnic, socio-economic and geographical boundaries. Henrico’s Gang Investigative Team is committed to preventing, intervening and suppressing gang activity in our county. Join HCTV as we learn how Henrico County Police are actively identifying gang activity in Gaining New Territory: Gang Awareness in Henrico.

Caring for the Animals: Livestock to Lizards in Henrico Recreation (34 mins)
