Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. On The Spot is a question and answer show challenging viewers to recall middle and high school knowledge about history, science, math, English, second languages, health, geography, art, music, and technology, and then teaches them the answer. The show uses an entertaining on-the-street format to test how well young people know the information contained in their own national curriculum. The format allows a wide range of topics and allows topics to be blended. The program also succeeds in modeling all ages, ethnicities and genders as successful, knowledgeable individuals. Although there are right and wrong answers, there are right answers from people that every audience member can identify with so that they see a representative from their own group succeeding. In turn, it also allows viewers to learn respect for those outside their own group.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. On The Spot is a question and answer show challenging viewers to recall middle and high school knowledge about history, science, math, English, second languages, health, geography, art, music, and technology, and then teaches them the answer. The show uses an entertaining on-the-street format to test how well young people know the information contained in their own national curriculum. The format allows a wide range of topics and allows topics to be blended. The program also succeeds in modeling all ages, ethnicities and genders as successful, knowledgeable individuals. Although there are right and wrong answers, there are right answers from people that every audience member can identify with so that they see a representative from their own group succeeding. In turn, it also allows viewers to learn respect for those outside their own group.
