Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. This live action series (based on the comic strip You Can with Beakman by Jok Church) proves that learning about science and nature can be fun and fascinating. Performance artist Paul Zaloom stars as the slightly nutty but never boring scientist whose answers to kids' questions reveal the relationships between principles of science and nature and how they impact our daily environment. Topics are addressed with cutting-edge humor and state-of-the-art visuals designed to make learning fun. Joining Beakman in his quest onward for science are Josie (Alanna Ubach), his bright young apprentice, and an oversize, sarcastic rat named Lester (Mark Ritts). Watching the show on their South Pole TV set are penguins Herb and Don, a cynical duo who provide comments and quips as Beakman struts his scientific stuff. BEAKMAN'S WORLD - I will air on WTOL's secondary digital channel ("Me-TV") in the 3rd quarter 2018.
