Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. (47.3) WHADDYADO, a half-hour weekly series designed to educate, inform, inspire and entertain, does an exceptional job educating teenagers. The show's target audience is between 13 and 16 years of age, the time period when children are making the transition to becoming adults. 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. It's 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 child's decisions. WHADDYADO provides an excellent opportunity for teenagers to learn life lessons they likely are otherwise not open to receiving.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. (47.1) The Series "Zoo Clues" will keep viewers engaged with the nearly infinite visual richness, animal characteristics, and wild range of animal behaviors. Beyond its target audience, both older and younger audiences should find this look across the amazing world of animals fascinating. Beyond basic engagement, "Zoo Clues" will leave viewers with a meaningful perspective about animals and meaningful comparisons 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 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. (47.3) WHADDYADO, a half-hour weekly series designed to educate, inform, inspire and entertain, does an exceptional job educating teenagers. The show's target audience is between 13 and 16 years of age, the time period when children are making the transition to becoming adults. 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. It's 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 child's decisions. WHADDYADO provides an excellent opportunity for teenagers to learn life lessons they likely are otherwise not open to receiving. What makes WHADDYADO such a valuable resource for teenagers is that it exposes them to real life situations. 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 viewer's belief in their immortality, a priceless lesson for all teenagers.
