Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. What an absolutely gorgeous program! If the visual is the most efficient medium for learning (and it is) then this series sends valuable education and information on a ride straight through the optic nerve to the brain. From famous cliffs in emerald Ireland to the Blue Grotto in Capri, we are taken on a tour in high definition of a planet's worth of striking natural wonders, some famous and some rarely seen. Skaftafel, Iceland, Victoria Falls, the Bay of Fundy, the "Wave" in Arizona, Machu Picchu, Waitomo, New Zealand, Mt. Bromo in Java, and more, are unveiled in a fast paced, arresting half hour of programming. Moreover, The Coolest Places on Earth is not content with merely showing these places. It explains how they came to be, when to see them best, and, thankfully, the natural laws behind their unique existence. The optics of Italy's Blue Grotto are explained as is the origin of the Ngorongo Crater, and the Mayan mysteries of Machu Picchu. But although a great amount of information is passed along, it is never pedantic. The information shared, important to the development of the 13-16-year-old target group, comes in a light narrative-the conversation tone of an awed friend. We learn why the ice caves in Skaftafel are blue, not transparent, and how the Waitomo caves in New Zealand got their name. The information is important. Without it, the visual poems of rainbows over Grand Canyon, smoking volcanic calderas, glowing worms, and time-lapsed cloud shadows would boggle the mind. The "coolest" places are sorted out by the unique facts of their being: the speed of the tides in the Bay of Fundy, the endangered cave bats in Kentucky, the Maori word origins of the Waitomo. The information, like the images, comes fast with impact, and is gone. It forces the viewer to pay attention-and there are gems if they do. For example, the narrative doesn't dwell on the information it shares that bats are the second largest order of mammals in the world. For many in the target audience (and beyond) just the fact that bats are mammals would be enough. The note that some bats are endangered enough to reroute cave visitors is a revelation to anyone who thinks of bats as the eternal vampires of the animal kingdom. There is some scary stuff to mix with the beauty: the tourist on his stomach peering over the edge of Victoria Falls; the long bungee jumps from the African bridge; the terror of being in the ice caves as they melt. For the 13-16 year-old, a little fright makes for a satisfying episode. For adults, it means a reach for the remote to DVR the images. They are worth a freeze frame.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Educational institutions would love to be able to go as far and wide-and as fun-with information as On The Spot does. Schools fall into single subject tracks in middle and high school. Linking information to multiple experiences is more effective for learning-so imagine how effective a program can be when it links information across King Tut, Stonehenge, aliens, camping, biking, and food. Which is what On The Spot does. Well-researched facts on highinterest topics delivered with bright, fast, visuals will feed the interests of a broad audience group, but the approach does particularly well for the 13-16 year-old target audience. Archeology, science, and astronomy become fascinating by the clever culling of information. The programs are built with an approach that, on the surface appears to be directed for adult. But Pete Sepenuk's narrative tone and style--light and fascinated-matches and holds the attention of the target audience. And, once it holds attention, what On The Spot does very well is deliver excellent informational content. And for the target audience, it is essential that the information is not dumbed down. It is not in On The Spot. The program is peppered with breakout segments designed to be interactive, calling for the viewer to respond. These include the "Speed Round" (with ticking clock graphic), "Clinical or Cynical", and "Solved or Unsolved." The segments keep this from being passive viewing- another nice point when targeting viewers with information and education.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. On The Spot is a series tapping knowledge across a series of subject areas: geography, art,technology, science, math, history, language, music, and sports. It also addresses general cultural knowledge. The format is a series of seemingly random questions to individuals who are either of school age or adults past the age of high school graduation. There are three fundamental educational benefits to this format. First, it taps into fact retrieval in the curriculum. Second, and more important, it expands the information beyond fact retrieval. Third, and most important, it addresses what educators call non cognitive factors for student success. These are factors that can measurably improve student achievement without specifically involving material to be tested. These include self-esteem and frames in which students see learning occurring. By removing information from the academic silos where it is generally taught and moving it, literally, to the mall, it forces a synthesis that is difficult to achieve in an academic setting. The fact that correct answers are giving by diverse ethnicities and ages, by both genders, and not by stereotypes of smart people' is essential. It means that anyone can own information. The fact that young people will see this on television in a non academic setting is also very important. Whatever the curriculum or information, knowledge becomes the star-and is demonstrated by every type of person. Target age group teens 13-16.
