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.

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. WTVR began a legacy of quality local programming, which was soon followed by WXEX and WRVA. These early television pioneers brought us local favorites including Dandy Doodle, Sailor Bob and Shock Theatre. Join HCTV as we celebrate more than 60 years of community programming and look at how this new form of entertainment changed our lives forever in Airwaves of Yesteryear: Early Television in Central Virginia.

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.

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.

Cashell Donahoe: A Gentleman and a Scholar (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.

Driving Force: Henrico’s Traffic Safety Unit (27 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.

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

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