Forging Freedom: The Story of Gabriel’s Rebellion (29 mins)

Were it not for a typical late summer storm in Central Virginia, the events planned for August 30, 1800 might have changed the history of our country forever. A slave named Gabriel, owned by Thomas Henry Prosser of Brookfield plantation, conceived and organized a widespread slave uprising. Involving several Virginia localities, it was possibly the most far-reaching slave uprising planned in the history of the South. The plan might have succeeded had it not been for a sudden, severe downpour and the disclosure of the plot by several slaves, including Tom and Pharoah, who belonged to Mosby Sheppard of Meadow Farm. The alarm went out and the rebellion was thwarted. The effects of the conspiracy were profound and as a result, county and state leaders instituted legislation to regulate the movement of slaves and free blacks. Join HCTV as we tell the story of Gabriel and the failed insurrection in Forging Freedom: The Story of Gabriel’s Rebellion.

Bond Referendum Projects (10 mins)

There are 26 different capital projects included in Henrico’s bond referendum, from new and renovated schools and fire stations, to park projects, a new library and road improvements. See what specific projects will be funded in this 10-minute video.

Henrico Statesman: Charles M. Johnson 1919-1981 (20 mins)

Charles Monroe Johnson didn’t intend to shape the future of Henrico County when he settled near Bethlehem Road after World War II. As a young husband and father, he wanted simply to live in a strong, vibrant community. Today, Charles M. Johnson Elementary School stands as a testament to one man’s willingness to step up, to volunteer and to devote himself to his community. Join HCTV as we talk to family members, friends and colleagues who share their stories of a true Henrico Statesman.

SWAT: Henrico’s Special Weapons And Tactics Team (18 mins)

Unified action and perfect precision are paramount to its successful operations, and team members must be ready to engage at a moment’s notice. Join HCTV as we follow this elite, highly-trained, Special Weapons and Tactics team.

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.

Never Forget: Janice Johnson Missing Person Cold Case (15 mins)

On November 1, 2001 Janice Johnson, a wife and mother of three children, went missing. While Police located her abandoned car several days later, no other evidence has surfaced — no crime scene, no body, no witnesses. In the years that have since passed, Henrico County Cold Case detectives have worked tirelessly to link a suspect to Janice’s disappearance, but they still need that one tip, or one phone call to help solve the mystery of what happened to Janice Johnson. Never Forget.

Curtain Call: A History of the Henrico Theatre (25 mins)

When it opened its doors in 1938, the Henrico Theatre was described as a “big city temple of entertainment set in beautiful rural surroundings.” A classic example of art-deco architecture, the theatre was the crown jewel of Highland Springs. After years of successes and changes of ownership, the Henrico Theatre closed its doors— until Henrico County purchased the property in 1999. Join HCTV as we reveal the story behind the theatre, follow the extensive renovation process and learn how it has become a historic landmark in the county.

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.

Hometown Hero: Arthur Ashe, Jr. (28 mins)
