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. Grouping animal behaviors and physical characteristics into groups from a human point of view holds the series thematically together. Animal Senses explains how animals use their extraordinary senses in ways that we can't. Animal Olympics creates an animal "Olympics" where animals are put together in an athletic competition based upon their statistics. It is always kept in perspective by putting the feats in human terms, such as when the leaping ability of a flea is compared to a human high jump of hundreds of feet. The music is cinematic and supportive. The narrator's everyday tone keeps everything in perspective for adolescent viewers (examples: "sounds complicated, doesn't it?" and "let's investigate!") while keeping it interesting for adults. The pull of the Mystery Animal visual quizzes and the fun of Animal Oddities make the show more interactive and will no doubt lead to interesting social media posts by viewers. The information presented is so rich and mindboggling that Zoo Clues is one of those rare programs that would work visually with the sound off-or as a radio show with no visuals at all.
