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

Although more than 400 years have passed since she stepped into history, Pocahontas continues to capture the imagination of people everywhere.

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

Heroin has become a rampant killer across the United States. In 2015, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said use of the powerful narcotic had reached an epidemic level. Henrico officials have assembled a task force to work with the community and treatment providers to develop a strong, comprehensive approach to confront the challenges of heroin. 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.

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?

Birds of the James (26 mins)

We’ve all marveled at the majesty of Bald Eagles, Ospreys, Double-Crested Cormorants, and Great Blue Herons — truly a natural resource to behold. 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.

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.

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.

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

Henrico-based manufacturers make many products that touch our daily lives in ways we may not realize.

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.

A Piece of Our Past: The Old Henrico County Courthouse and Jail (21 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.

The Elko Files: History and Mystery in Eastern Henrico (21 mins)

The Elko tract in eastern Henrico County is a place where you can’t always believe what you see. It’s also a place of purpose, reinvention and promise. What remains today has been called a “lost city,” and much has been speculated about its past. The Elko name marks a middle school and a community center, and with land for further development, the tract remains a vital part of Henrico’s plan for the future. Join HCTV as we explore the mysteries and misunderstandings of the Elko Files.
