Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Educational institutions would love to be able to go as far and wide-and as fun-with information as On The Spot does. Schools fall into single subject tracks in middle and high school. Linking information to multiple experiences is more effective for learning-so imagine how effective a program can be when it links information across King Tut, Stonehenge, aliens, camping, biking, and food. Which is what On The Spot does. Well-researched facts on highinterest topics delivered with bright, fast, visuals will feed the interests of a broad audience group, but the approach does particularly well for the 13-16 year-old target audience. Archeology, science, and astronomy become fascinating by the clever culling of information. The programs are built with an approach that, on the surface appears to be directed for adult. But Pete Sepenuk's narrative tone and style--light and fascinated-matches and holds the attention of the target audience. And, once it holds attention, what On The Spot does very well is deliver excellent informational content. And for the target audience, it is essential that the information is not dumbed down. It is not in On The Spot. The program is peppered with breakout segments designed to be interactive, calling for the viewer to respond. These include the "Speed Round" (with ticking clock graphic), "Clinical or Cynical", and "Solved or Unsolved." The segments keep this from being passive viewing- another nice point when targeting viewers with information and education.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. What an absolutely gorgeous program! If the visual is the most efficient medium for learning (and it is) then this series sends valuable education and information on a ride straight through the optic nerve to the brain. The Coolest Places on Earth is not content with merely showing places. It explains how they came to be, when to see them best, and, thankfully, the natural laws behind their unique existence. The information shared, important to the development of the 13-16-year-old target group, comes in a light narrative-the conversation tone of an awed friend. The information, like the images, comes fast with impact, and is gone. It forces the viewer to pay attention-and there are gems if they do. For example, the narrative doesn't dwell on the information it shares that bats are the second largest order of mammals in the world. For many in the target audience (and beyond) just the fact that bats are mammals would be enough. The note that some bats are endangered enough to reroute cave visitors is a revelation to anyone who thinks of bats as the eternal vampires of the animal kingdom.
