Cashell Donahoe: A Gentleman and a Scholar (18 mins)

Cashell Donahoe left an indelible mark on Henrico County, having served as assistant superintendent of schools from 1956 until 1974. But Donahoe was more than a teacher and an administrator. He was a mountain of a man, with an abiding faith, a commitment to others and a thirst for knowledge. Join HCTV as we examine the life of Cashell Donahoe: A Gentleman and a Scholar.

Elizabeth Jane Holladay: Trailblazer of Public Education (15 mins)

Henrico County Public Schools is widely recognized as one of the nation’s premier school systems, but this modern model of excellence comes from humble beginnings. One cornerstone was laid in the late 19th century, in the parlor of a home on Mountain Road, where a dedicated teacher began sharing her love of learning with a handful of children from the nearby farms. By the time she was done, Elizabeth Jane Holladay had helped build a foundation for public education in Henrico. Students today continue to learn under her watchful eye — at Holladay Elementary School in central Henrico, just a couple miles from her original classroom. Join HCTV as we learn about Miss Lizzie, her life and her dedication to education.

Signs, Lines and Signals: On The Road With Henrico’s Traffic Engineering Division (17 mins)

Henrico County is a community in constant motion. Thousands of lane miles of road connect neighborhoods, schools, businesses and other facilities — any place you need to go. The safety of residents and motorists depends on streets that are properly designed, maintained and marked. Installing, repairing and replacing signs; placing lines and other roadway markings; and ensuring traffic signals are working as they should — all of these duties, as well as the planning of new roads, fall to the Department of Public Works and its Traffic Engineering Division.

Standing Tall: Native Trees of Henrico County (25 mins)

From majestic oaks to loblolly pines, the native trees of Henrico not only enhance the natural beauty of the county and provide a habitat for animals, they play a vital part in the ecology of our environment. Join HCTV as we learn about the variety of native trees in our area and the role they play in the cycle of life.

Frozen in Time: The Ruins of the James River Steam Brewery (23 mins)

The arched cellar entrance of David Yuengling Junior’s once mighty James River Steam Brewery is a portal to an amazing tale that lies buried in a Rocketts Landing hillside, nearly forgotten for a century. The mysterious facade bears no trace of the famous name or the tumultuous times during which an American staple, lager beer, was produced on a massive scale right here in Henrico County. Join HCTV for a journey into the cellars and back in time.

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.

Stories of Prevention & Recovery (26 mins)

  • Hiding in Plain Sight: Signs of Drug Use
  • Prescription Painkillers Use & Abuse
  • Recovery Behind Bars
  • Safe Pill Disposal
  • Treatment for Addiction
  • Stop an Opioid Overdose with Naloxone

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.

Underage Drinking: Adult Consequences (17 mins)

Keeping alcohol out of the hands of underage drinkers is a team effort. Parents, school officials, law enforcement and community partners have joined together to teach tweens to twenties about the health risks and legal consequences that can result from a moment of poor judgment. HCTV talks to the experts about the steps they are taking to keep our young people safe.

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.

When the Clock Strikes Twelve: New Year’s Traditions (29 mins)

Remember, reflect, resolve, renew — our New Year’s traditions help us do all of these things. But before you can have the tradition, you need to have the New Year. Why do we celebrate the first of January? And how did all of these traditions get started? From Auld Lang Syne and champagne toasts, to Times Square, black-eyed peas and Pasadena’s Rose Bowl, learn about all things New Year in HCTV’s When the Clock Strikes Twelve: New Year’s Traditions.

From the Mines of Henrico: The Beginnings of Our Nation’s Coal Industry (21 mins)

Coal has been used as an energy source worldwide for thousands of years. In the United States, the coal industry originated on the banks of the James River and mines right here in Henrico County. Join HCTV as we document the industry’s rise and fall, and see what remains today of Henrico’s often overlooked coal history.

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.

Airwaves of Yesteryear: Early Television in Central Virginia (30 mins)

On April 22, 1948 the very first television broadcast south of our nation’s capital happened right here in Central Virginia. WTVR began a legacy of quality local programming, which was soon followed by WXEX and WRVA. These early television pioneers brought us local favorites including Dandy Doodle, Sailor Bob and Shock Theatre. Join HCTV as we celebrate more than 60 years of community programming and look at how this new form of entertainment changed our lives forever in Airwaves of Yesteryear: Early Television in Central Virginia.
