Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Both theory and research demonstrate that this is the stage of life where children begin to experiment with who they are who they want to be. Its a time which is typified by feeling invincible. This sense of invulnerability is commonly coupled with withdraw from parents and authority figures which leaves teenagers susceptible to poor decision making. Therefore, this time where insight and judgment are developing, but adult influence is limited, educational programming can make an immense impact on a childs decisions. The program provides an excellent opportunity for teenagers to learn life lessons they likely are otherwise not open to receiving. The reenactments give the audience the opportunity to develop important life saving skills. By exposing the audience to perilous situations that have actually occurred, then, using interviews with the participants, and instructions from experts, teenagers are shown what the proper reaction should be when faced with similar life-threatening circumstances this show is perfectly positioned to educate its audience. Because research demonstrates that teenagers learn best from children their own age, this show is uniquely designed to get its lessons through to teenagers. It is likely that in addition to learning the life saving lessons contained in each episode, the show will also work to minimize a viewers belief in their immortality, a priceless lesson for all teenagers. WHADDYADOs moral dilemma segment is an invaluable addition to the series. In these segments, teenagers are given a scenario which raises moral questions. They are then provided with an experts analysis of the costs and benefits of various courses of action. This portion of the show touches on sensitive areas that I have yet to find in other television shows being dealt with in such an up front, open nature.
