"Sports Stars of Tomorrow" displays the hard work and dedication that it takes to be a true sports star. It chronicles the trials and tribulations of the young athletes as they strive to become a "top level" performer in the sports arena. The program helps youngsters realize that their full potential in both life and the playing field are attainable with lots of hard work and determination. It reinforces the importance of key values like dedication, discipline, commitment and community involvement. "Sports Stars of Tomorrow" also provides in-depth, human-interest stories that reveal the important challenges and lessons that mold our young athletes. Not everyone is cut out to be a superstar. In Sports Stars of Tomorrow, we recognize those athletes that have learned "life lessons" along the way while battling varying obstacles. These stories inspire and teach our youth that while many desire greatness on the grand stage of competition, much can be learned through the journey that can make a significant difference throughout one's life. The October 2, 2010 episode was preempted to air the Church of Jesus Christ Latter-Day Saints (LDS) General Conference.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Animal Atlas is an entertaining, informative, and educational series geared toward the age group of 13 to 16. To summarize, the program in general focuses on Life Science with underlying science content standards addressed. The content, like the tone of the narration, is engaging, challenging, and avoids condescension. It manages to pack a great deal of educational information into a narrative theme that will hold young viewer's interest. Within the episode "30 MPH," (title chosen as the demarcation for exceptional animal speed), information is included on animal weight, animal behavior, animal social characteristics, and habitat adaptation in addition to the expected data on speed. Speed facts are grouped in meaningful ways. Speed champions in water, on land, and in the air are listed in addition to the overall winner (the Peregrine Falcon). Further, categories of two-legged, four-legged, and species are differentiated, as is human speed, which is effectively used as a point of comparison. The format supports the educational content. The editing style of quick cuts emphasizing high-interest visuals is well suited to the 13-16 year-old age group. The animal world presents a dazzling variety of fur, faces, body types, and movements and a welcome number of these are included. The visual elements alone present a wonderful tour of animal morphology and the emphasis on color, shapes, and faces will appropriately hold attention as the narrative delivers educational information. The vocabulary will stretch the knowledge base, and potentially new terms as "brachiating", "ungulates", are always introduced in context with supporting information ("ungulates, or hoofed animals...") as well as visual articulation. This is a very effective way to deliver educational content.
