Connecting Communities: The Bridges of Henrico (16 mins)

The Huguenot, Willey, Varina-Enon and Pocahontas Parkway bridges keep our communities connected, spur commerce and growth, and serve as icons or symbols of the county. These four modern marvels of engineering science serve as gateways to Henrico, and are vital to the 21st century transportation network that moves the county and the region.

Tommy Edwards: Henrico’s Hit Maker (29 mins)

Singer-songwriter Tommy Edwards crooned his way to the top of the charts in the 1950s, selling millions of records in the U.S. and around the world. The Henrico native appeared on the programs of entertainment icons Ed Sullivan and Dick Clark, and headlined shows in major cities. But fame would prove to be fleeting for Henrico’s biggest star, who found his career peaking at the same time American popular music was dramatically changing. Join HCTV on a musical journey through Tommy’s life and times, which began and ended in Henrico’s West End.

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.

Fighting the Stigma of Opioid Addiction: Voices of Recovery (26 mins)

Americans are becoming addicted to heroin and opioids at an alarming rate, yet few receive treatment. HCTV sat down with recovering opioid addicts who shared their stories in hopes of helping others seek help. One of the recovering addicts expressed “We’re not bad people. We’re sick people. When we get well, we get better. Through recovery.” Join HCTV as we learn how this addiction knows no boundaries in Fighting the Stigma of Opioid Addiction: Voices of Recovery.

A New Beginning: Inside Henrico Drug Court (26 mins)

Drug Court works to intervene and rehabilitate participants so they can live clean and sober lives.

The Story of Mercer Hugh Cosby Farm (20 mins)

The Mercer Hugh Cosby Farm, located in western Henrico County, has been part of one family’s story for five generations. Significant for its ownership by one African-American family dating back to the late 1800s, Mercer Hugh Cosby built the farmhouse in the 1880s on 52-acres. Today, the Cosby farm teems with cornstalks and other crops — and it gives barely notice to the suburban development that’s sprung up nearby. Join HCTV as we learn more about this family of farmers, educators and preservationist and its notable place in Henrico’s history.

Taking Out the Trash: Henrico County’s Solid Waste Division (14 mins)

Trash. We all have it, but where does it go after we take it to the curb? Who picks it up and how do they do it day after day, rain or shine? Join HCTV as we ride along with the Henrico Solid Waste Division, and you’ll quickly see there’s far more to it than simply emptying your supercan into a big truck.

Haunted Henrico: Are Ghosts Dwelling in Historic County Properties? (23 mins)

Is it simply folklore, or is it paranormal? Imagination, or science? Most of us have heard ghost stories throughout our lives, and we love to be intrigued and even scared by the tales of mystical spirits among us. Henrico’s history goes back centuries, and many colorful characters have passed through the county leaving their legacies behind — but did they leave? Walkerton, Dabbs House and Meadow Farm are three of the county’s historic properties dating back to the early 1800s, all of them having their fair share of ghost stories and reported sightings. Join HCTV as we explore the phenomenon in Haunted Henrico: Are Ghosts Dwelling in Historic County Properties?

ORBIT: Opiate Recovery By Intensive Tracking (20 mins)

In Henrico County, incarceration can provide a critical first step on a path to recovery from an opiate addiction. The Sheriff’s Office started the O.R.B.I.T., or Opiate Recovery by Intensive Tracking, program to help inmates regain control of their lives. The phased program begins by teaching the basics of recovery and helping participants create a personal relapse prevention plan. In later phases, they are allowed to work on supervised crews at county buildings and facilities, receive vocational training and reconnect with their families. O.R.B.I.T., which takes about 12 months to complete, provides support and random drug testing as participants progress to work release and home electronic monitoring.

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. 

Vote Here! Virginia’s History of Voting and Elections (25 mins)

For more than two centuries, Virginia’s electorate has expanded and become more representative of its people — though not without struggle. Much like the voting ranks have changed over time, so has the process. Changes brought by the Voting Rights Act and other measures inspired by the Civil Rights Movement reverberated throughout the Commonwealth. The unfettered right to vote is available to more Virginians today than at any point in the state’s history. That right is not always exercised, however. Join HCTV as we explore the history of voting and the evolution of elections in Virginia.

Only Rain Down the Drain! Protecting Our Stormwater System (13 mins)

The Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System — also known as MS4 — is all around us, yet it is easy to overlook. It carries runoff from streets, parking lots and other land surfaces directly to streams and creeks. This water, and the pollutants that get swept up in it, does not pass through a treatment plant before emptying into the James or Chickahominy Rivers, and ultimately, the Chesapeake Bay. Learn what Henrico County is doing to prevent pollution from entering our watersheds, and what you can do to help in Only Rain Down the Drain! Protecting Our Stormwater System.

Juvenile Detention in Henrico County: Rebuilding Lives to Benefit Our Community (16 mins)

Juvenile Detention in Henrico County: Rebuilding Lives to Benefit Our Community (Running Time: 16 minutes) – The Henrico County Juvenile Detention Home and the James River Juvenile Detention Center offer much more than a secure place for youth awaiting court action or serving short sentences. With the help of their caring staffs and innovative programming, the facilities help youths continue their education, work through any emotional or other challenges and prepare them upon release to become contributing members of the community.

Identity Theft: Not a Matter of If, but When (17 mins)

Technology enhances our lives with countless conveniences. But it also provides endless opportunities for thieves to exploit our use of everything from social media to gift cards, credit cards, e-commerce and email. Join HCTV as we uncover some of the most popular scams, hacks, and schemes and learn how you can keep from being a target.
