In the Hot Zone: Henrico’s Hazardous Incident Team (25 mins)

Get Your Game On: Open Gym (14 mins)

Whether your game is pickleball, table tennis, volleyball, badminton or basketball, you can hit the courts in Henrico County’s Open Gym program!

Alzheimer’s Disease: The Longest Goodbye (23 mins)

Alzheimer’s disease is the sixth leading cause of death in the United States. There is no known cause, and no cure. Alzheimer’s takes a devastating toll on those diagnosed with the disease and their families. Join HCTV as we hear people living with Alzheimer’s, family members, health professionals and advocates tell us how they cope with this progressive illness in Alzheimer’s Disease: The Longest Goodbye.

Strumming up the Past: Henrico’s Bluegrass Music (24 mins)

Bluegrass represents a distinctly American style of music, a beautiful blend of old-timey, Celtic, gospel, country and blues. Henrico County is keeping the music alive by organizing a bluegrass jam each month at Dorey Park. If you’ve stood before the microphone and or clapped from the audience, you know there’s something about bluegrass that tugs on your soul.

Understanding Childhood Obesity: A Journey to Healthy Living (14 mins)

Childhood obesity is considered by many pediatricians to be the No. 1 health risk facing youth in our country. Affecting one in three children, childhood obesity has reached epidemic levels. There are many factors that have contributed to this crisis, ranging from heredity, food choices and activity levels to the way our communities are planned and designed. Making positive changes now can help our children with their own journey to healthy living.

Taking to the Sky: First Ladies of Aviation (26 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.

By George! The Story of Henry Ward (17 mins)

Ward Elementary School stands along Darbytown Road in Henrico County’s rural Varina area. The school takes its name from Henry Ward, a compassionate, down-to-earth family man who helped spark the educations of a generation of local children. In and out of the classroom, Ward demonstrated an ability to lead and inspire. Nine years after Ward’s death, the Henrico School Board honored his years of service to the community by naming a new school after him. Join HCTV as we explore his life and legacy in By George: The Story of Henry Ward.

The History of New Market Road: Connecting the Past to the Future (17 mins)

New Market Road, part of the Route 5 corridor in eastern Henrico, is one of Virginia’s most historically significant roads. Native Americans, war veterans, local farmers and artisans travelled this byway during times of war and peace, creating history along the way. Join HCTV as we explore the times gone by in The History of New Market Road: Connecting the Past to the Future..

Between The Lines: How Reconstruction Redrew The Map of Henrico (22 mins)

You may know which magisterial district you live in, but do you know how that district came to be, or why its boundaries are where they are? The reasons are far more interesting and complex than you may think. Our districts and our Board of Supervisors structure of governance can trace their roots back to the turbulent years following the Civil War, known as the Reconstruction Period, and have been evolving with the times ever since.

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?

Active and Engaged: Programs for Henrico’s Older Adults (11 mins)

The number of older residents is rising sharply across the United States, as baby boomers have grayed and begun to reach retirement age. By 2030 Henrico County will have nearly 70,000 residents 65 or older. The senior lifestyle is vastly different from what it used to be. These older residents are active and engaged, and Henrico offers a wide range of programs for them.

Pride and Precision: The Honor Guards of Henrico County (15 mins)

With polish and precision, the honor guards of Henrico County lead by quiet example and command respect for the flags of our nation, state and county. They also help honor the men and women who serve and sacrifice for us all. The Police and Fire divisions and the Sheriff’s Office each has its own ceremonial unit. They continue a proud military tradition that dates to 1784 and the end of the American Revolution. 

Seamless Service: Henrico’s Volunteer Rescue Squads (14 mins)

When a medical emergency arises, Henrico County calls on a network of first responders to provide immediate care at the scene. These highly trained individuals are often members of the Division of Fire, but they also can be volunteers with one of the county’s three independent rescue squads. Join HCTV as we learn more about the volunteers’ professional training, equipment, and what drives them to help others.

Never Forget: Cynthia Gilliam-Ford Cold Case (21 mins)

In January of 1991 Henrico Police discovered human skeletal remains wrapped in a blanket in a wooded area of the county. Evidence at the scene could not help identify the victim or lead police to a suspect. Nearly two decades later, a facial reconstruction sketch released to the media proved to be the key in uncovering the identity of this Jane Doe. Police are now hot on the trail of her killer and they need your help to find the murderer of Cynthia Gilliam-Ford. Never Forget.
