Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. WILD AMERICA is targeted to children ages 13-16. The key educational objective of the program is to familiarize children with the animals of the North American content, their interaction with other animals and their environment. Throughout the series emphasis will be placed upon protecting endangered species and the impact that humans have while interacting in their environment. Each episode of the series will be specific to a particular animal. Topics will range from basic food gather, mating, natural enemies, relationships to other animals, and the interaction of the specific ecology on the survival of the species. We expect that children viewing the program will achieve a greater understanding of nature and specific animal species because of the up-close and detailed photography of the series. Through this understanding, it is hoped children will better relate to the natural environment as it exist in North American and learn to protect its natural species.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Virus Attack is a series that depicts pollution as DNA infected by viruses, which are infecting a city with the sole purpose of destroying it. The three main characters, David, Alice, and George represent the anti-viruses who are trying to help. David has become the power to ward off the evil viruses. His father,Professor Amaldi, has devoted his life to finding a solution to the evil gene of wickedness. It is an interesting metaphor for pollution. The series shows elements of courage, friendship, and problem solving. Although the concept is far-fetched, it brings enough science concepts to make it plausible. This would be an excellent venue to discuss the issues of pollution in our modern world. Concepts of what is causing pollution and how students can help to solve some of these problems are the issues young people face today. They very often feel powerless and this show's characters give them great role models to try and problem solve the issues of pollution. There are no mixed messages in this series.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. informative entertainment for eight to twelve year olds. Monsters and Pirates seeks to educate this age group about developmentally relevant psychological themes relating to individual competence by providing role models of children their age mastering unusual, new and challenging situations. Developmentally, eight to twelve year olds are involved with developing a sense of personal competence and are beginning to observe and think logically about the skills they are developing. The characters in Monsters and Pirates are also experiencing their first tastes of using their skills independently,as they sail off on a test adventure to obtain their diplomas from the Blackburn Academy for pirates. They are forced to be innovative as they manage issues of competition and authority, and they solve these problems in ways to which children can relate. They do things like summoning jellyfish to help slow down their competition or joining as a team to help each other over a widening abyss. Each character in the episodes has a unique talent to contribute to the venture, and respect is shown for individuality of both boys and girls of many types, not to mention some very interesting animals. Solutions to problems in the episodes are found by using resources in novel ways. This encourages the eight to twelve year old child to think creatively about his or her own potential and situation.
