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.

Henrico Horticulture (15 mins)

Beautiful lawns depend on healthy soil, proper irrigation and regular mowing. Join HCTV and the Henrico office of Virginia Cooperative Extension as we explain how to collect soil samples for testing and understanding the results.

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.

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.

Boston: The Story of a Racehorse (20 mins)

In the realm of horseracing greats, one thoroughbred from Virginia stands out: Secretariat. In 1973, as a 3-year-old, he won horseracing’s Triple Crown — a feat that went unmatched for another 42 years. But more than a century before Secretariat rewrote the record book, another stallion from central Virginia became known far and wide for his speed, stamina — and vicious temperament. This horse — born in Henrico County and named Boston — is part of an ancestral line that produced Secretariat and other notable horses. Join HCTV as we look into his life, victories and defeats in Boston: The Story of a Racehorse.

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.

Dr. William C. Bosher, Jr.: The Man Behind the Bow Tie (35 mins)

William Cleveland Bosher Junior was born January 21, 1946 in Richmond, and spent his childhood on his family’s small farm in Hanover County. He landed his first teaching job in 1968 at Henrico’s J.R. Tucker High School at the age of 22, eventually becoming Superintendent of Schools for Henrico County, Chesterfield County, and the Commonwealth of Virginia. He influenced the education of countless children and was known for his educational expertise nationally and internationally — as well as his trademark bow tie. His legacy is in the lives he touched and the spirit of hope he cultivated everywhere he went. Join HCTV as we experience his extraordinary life in Dr. William C. Bosher, Jr.: The Man Behind the Bow Tie.

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.

Ringing the Bell: Police and Fire Chaplains of Henrico County (17 mins)

Police and Fire chaplains are volunteer ministers who provide pastoral care and spiritual support to the first responders and residents of Henrico County. Whether it’s helping officers deal with stress on the job, or helping someone from the community through a difficult time, their compassion and gentle care can be invaluable during a crisis.

A Hidden History: The Story of East End Cemetery (21 mins)

On the brightest of days, sunlight finds a way to cut through the canopies of mature trees at East End Cemetery in Henrico County. Don’t be misled by the heavy undergrowth and tangles of vines — this is sacred ground, the final resting place for thousands of African-Americans from the turn of the 20th century. Join HCTV as we gain insight into the cemetery’s rich cultural history, and learn how the land is slowly being reclaimed by volunteers determined to uncover East End’s secrets.

Faith, Smiles and Public Service: The Story of Dr. Jacob L. Adams (16 mins)

Jacob L. Adams Elementary School sits along Laburnum Avenue in Henrico’s East End. Opened in 1967, the school is named for Dr. Jacob L. Adams, a former member and Chair of the Henrico School Board and a beloved dentist in the Highland Springs area. An active community member, Adams was devoted to his local church, his patients, and his family. While serving on the School Board from 1945 to 1963, Dr. Adams oversaw a period of significant growth with the addition of 30 new public schools. Join HCTV as we shed light on Jacob L. Adams’ Highland Springs legacy.

Active Shooter: What Would You Do? (21 mins)

Decades ago, none of us had ever heard the term “active shooter.” Unfortunately, it’s all too commonplace in our world today, and it can happen anywhere at any time. If you were involved in an active shooter incident, what would you do to survive? Run? Hide? Fight? Join HCTV as we learn from public safety agents and officials what we can do if we ever find ourselves in this horrific position.
