Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. (Digital 40.1)Zoo Clues will engage viewers with the nearly infinite visual richness, animal characteristics, and wild range of animal behaviors. Zoo Clues will leave viewers with a meaningful perspective about animals and meaningful comparisions to their own human characteristics. The variety of the animal kingdom is truly odd and bizarre enough to read like fiction, but the clever narration of Zoo Clues links disparate information together in a way that always makes clear that what viewers see is real, natural, and relates to their own life in the real world.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. (Digital 40.2) Young, enthusiastic and passionate about food, Claire Thomas is the 22 years old host who opens viewers' eyes to how everyday life can inspire culinary creations in Food for Thought. Each weekly half-hour, produced for ages 13-16, informs and educates teens about the power of food as a tool for exploring new places, meeting new people and learning about different cultures. Claire serves as a role model for 13-16 year old viewers by showing her passion for her family, life and healthy living by sharing stories in the kitchen. Creative inspiration can come from any place at any time - sometimes from family, sometimes from friends, or even from bloggers needing her help. No matter how exotic or local the location, she's always in search of new tastes and places to explore. Based on her unique perspective gathered throughout each episode, Claire will teach the audience how to prepare the "inspired" dish while promoting a healthy attitude towards food and life.
