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. From famous cliffs in emerald Ireland to the Blue Grotto in Capri, we are taken on a tour in definition of a planet's worth of striking natural wonders, some famous and some rarely seen. Skaftafel, Iceland, Victoria Falls, the Bay of Fundy, the "Wave" in Arizona, Machu Picchu, Waitomo, New Zealand, Mt. Bromo in Java, and more, are unveiled in a fact paced, arresting half hour of programming. Moreover, The Coolest Places on Earth is not content with merely showing these places. It explains how they came to be, when to see them best, and, thankfully, the natural laws behind their unique existence. The optics of Italy's Blue Grotto are explained as is the origin of the Ngorongo Crater, and the Mayan mysteries of Machu Picchu.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. The series Zoo Clues will keep 13-16 year-old viewers engaged for 30 minutes 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 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.
