Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. [32.3 - This TV] "Whaddyado" is designed to educate, inform, inspire and entertain teens, while providing opportunities to learn life lessons they would otherwise not be open to receive. Teens are exposed to real life situations during reenactments where developing important life saving skills is examined. By exposing the teen viewer to perilous situations which have already occurred, then using interviews with the participants and instructions from experts, they are shown what the proper reaction should be when faced with similar life-threatening circumstances. The show also works to minimize the viewer's belief in their immortality, a priceless lesson for all teens. In the show's "moral dilemma" segment, teens are given a scenario which raises moral questions for which they're provided an expert's analysis of the costs and benefits of various courses of action, tackling the challenge head on. All in all, Whaddyado works to help develop the moral fiber of our nation's teens, each segment welcoming the opportunity for teens who seek to define themselves.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. [32.1] Zoo Clues is engaging and visually rich in its portrayal of animal characteristics and wide range of animal behaviors. Both older and younger audiences will appreciate this look across the amazing world of fascinating animals. Zoo Clues leaves viewers with a meaningful perspective about animals and evocative comparisons to their own human characteristics. The variety within the animal kingdom is truly odd and bizarre enough to read like fiction, but the clever narration of Zoo Clues links disparate information together to reveal that what viewers see here is real, natural, and relates to their own life in the real world. The pull of the Mystery Animal visual quizzes and the fun of Animal Oddities make the show more interactive and is certain to lead to interesting discussion in the family and in the classroom.

The show also works to minimize the viewer's belief in their immortality, a priceless lesson for all teens. In the show's "moral dilemma" segment, teens are given a scenario which raises moral questions for which they're provided an expert's analysis of the costs and benefits of various courses of action, tackling the challenge head on. All in all, Whaddyado works to help develop the moral fiber of our nation's teens, each segment welcoming the opportunity for teens who seek to define themselves.
