Henrico Medical Reserve Corps (6 mins)

The Henrico Medical Reserve Corps is a force of dedicated volunteers who stand ready to support the community in the event of a public health emergency.

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.

A Unified Plan: Behind the Scenes with Police and Fire at Richmond International Raceway (20 mins)

Making positive changes now can help our children with their own journey to healthy living.

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?

Finding a Way Back: The Heroin Crisis in Henrico County (22 mins)

Join HCTV as we look inside this public health emergency and find where help is available.

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.

Pocahontas: The Myth and Mystery of an Icon (34 mins)

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

What most people don’t realize is that these beautiful river birds reside right here at home along the James. Join HCTV as we get up close to the birds of the James River, and learn how they are part of the wonderful natural environment that surrounds us.

Made in Henrico: A Look Inside the County’s Manufacturing Sector (17 mins)

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.
