Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. On The Spot is a series that draws engaging content from the broadly define subject areas of science, history, art, technology, geography, math, history, language, music, and sports. Culture, both American and global, is also tapped for rich visual content. The pace is fast, the content interesting and unusual, and the visuals are what expects from television: animations, HD photography, and a mix of world-sized and microscopic points of view. Very important for entertainment and information-and often overlooked-is the practice in On The Spot of citing sources for information. This not only gives the 21st century viewer a handle to check facts on a phone, it also makes the statement that citing sources is important. Because the series pulls in startling and odd facts and information, this is crucial. The episodes grab the viewer with challenges both informal and formal (timed challenges). Writer Peter McDonnell pulls from an astonishingly wide of content and consumes a huge number of informative bites in each episode.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. On The Spot is a series that draws engaging content from the broadly define subject areas of science, history, art, technology, geography, math, history, language, music, and sports. Culture, both American and global, is also tapped for rich visual content. The pace is fast, the content interesting and unusual, and the visuals are what expects from television: animations, HD photography, and a mix of world-sized and microscopic points of view. Very important for entertainment and information-and often overlooked-is the practice in On The Spot of citing sources for information. This not only gives the 21st century viewer a handle to check facts on a phone, it also makes the statement that citing sources is important. Because the series pulls in startling and odd facts and information, this is crucial. The episodes grab the viewer with challenges both informal and formal (timed challenges). Writer Peter McDonnell pulls from an astonishingly wide of content and consumes a huge number of informative bites in each episode.
