Include any other comments or information you want the Commission to consider in evaluating your compliance with the Children's Television Act (or use this space for supplemental explanations). This may include information on any other noncore educational and informational programming that you aired this quarter or plan to air during the next quarter, or any existing or proposed non-broadcast efforts that will enhance the educational and informational value of such programming to children. See 47 C.F.R. Section 73.671, NOTES 2 and 3. Due to a defective version of the program that we received from the program distributor, the MeTV Network educational program "Safari," which aired on Saturday, March 23, 2013 from 10:30- 11:00am Eastern/Pacific Time (9:30- 10:00am Central/Mountain Time) did not contain an "E/I" logo superimposition throughout the entire program. This program was identified by the Network as an "E/I" program to the suppliers of program guides, and it was also introduced by an announcement stating that the following program is an "E/I" program. In addition, the "E/I" logo did appear as a superimposition over the program for approximately the first five seconds at the start of each program segment. Due to an error, the logo did not continue to be superimposed thereafter. MeTV Network has informed us that this was an inadvertent error and actions have been taken to help ensure the error does not recur. In addition, this same program episode was aired in a rebroadcast on Saturday, March 30, 2013 from 11:00- 11:30am Eastern Time in its established second home. This rebroadcast was publicized by announcements on MeTV Network, and the "E/I" logo was superimposed over the program for the entire program duration in this rebroadcast.
