County wins Emmy for program on early TV in region

Geoff Weidele
A feature program produced for Henrico County Television won a 2011 Emmy from the National Capital Chesapeake Bay Chapter of the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences.

The 29-minute program “Airwaves of Yesteryear: Early Television in Central Virginia,” produced and directed by Geoff Weidele, received the award in the category of arts and entertainment program or special. The winners were announced during The 54th Emmy Awards ceremony held Saturday at the Newseum in Washington.

The Emmy marks the first won by Weidele and the fourth by Henrico County Public Relations & Media Services since it launched HCTV in 2003 to produce original programming focused on Henrico.

A graduate of James Madison University, Weidele joined HCTV in 2005. He has worked for more than 25 years in television production, including for local television and video production companies in the metro Richmond and Northern Virginia areas.

Two other programs produced by HCTV were nominated for Emmys in 2011, both in the historical documentary category. They were “Henrico’s Legacy: Commemorating 400 Years” produced and directed by Steven Dunn and Ben Sheppard, and “Richard Evelyn Byrd: Admiral of the Antarctic,” produced and directed by Sheppard.

All three programs have been broadcast on HCTV and are available online at http://www.co.henrico.va.us/pr/channel-17/online-programs.html .

A gift that should stop giving

‘Jingle All the Way 2’ is expectedly flawed
Was anyone asking for an extra-large helping of Larry the Cable Guy this Christmas? If so, you can thank Santa Claus for Jingle All the Way 2.

If not, you can be like the rest of us and curse Santa for his folly in creating such a film. Santa, we neither wanted nor needed this.

A follow-up to the much-derided 1996 Christmas film Jingle All the Way, Jingle All the Way 2 isn’t so much a sequel as it is an odd kind of remake, offering a few original twists on the original’s dad-vs-dad holiday showdown, but also copying large chunks of the original without alteration. > Read more.
