Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. 50.1 Animal Atlas continues its long series life by using technology to consistently improve the essential visual component of the episodes. The high definition video of the arresting animals and animal elements is well used to engage viewers and lead them through a sequence of valued and meaningful insights. One of the series strengths continues to be that it does not just present a list of animal facts but links a wide variety of information into sequences that make knowledge of the animal kingdom both simpler and easier to remember. The interstitial quizzes have become not just summaries of previous information but a lead-in to the next organized sequence of information. The tone of credited narrator Eric Schwartz is perfect for the target group of 13-16 year-olds. It is non-professorial and faux flip-again, ideal for the target mindset of selfconfident adolescence. Yet the vocabulary is rich. It presumes the understanding of the words like "behemoth" and "adaptation" but gives enough context to add that word to young viewers' vocabulary without getting pedantic. Great information in a rich visual context.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. 50.3 Animal Atlas remains on course as a program that is entertaining and engaging to a wide audience while managing to deliver information that would be very welcome in a middle or high school classroom. The series matches the evolved visual intelligence of the young 21st century audience by building content with short clips, five-seconds or less in length, and weaving them together in a narrative that keeps a viewer engaged with a compelling narrative overview. The animal kingdom has an innate richness of color, form, and motion and Animal Atlas episodes are built from this richness. The thread that links the clips together is the connection between the differing members of the animal kingdom---including our own species. In a compelling blend, animal examples are pulled from both common experience, such as the horse and cat, and exotic animals like the clouded leopard and the red panda. As the nature of animals is explored, the content and clarity create a program of exception education value.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. 50.3 Animal Atlas continues its long series life by using technology to consistently improve the essential visual component of the episodes. The high definition video of the arresting animals and animal elements is well used to engage viewers and lead them through a sequence of valued and meaningful insights. One of the series strengths continues to be that it does not just present a list of animal facts but links a wide variety of information into sequences that make knowledge of the animal kingdom both simpler and easier to remember. The interstitial quizzes have become not just summaries of previous information but a lead-in to the next organized sequence of information. The tone of credited narrator Eric Schwartz is perfect for the target group of 13-16 year-olds. It is non-professorial and faux flip-again, ideal for the target mindset of selfconfident adolescence. Yet the vocabulary is rich. It presumes the understanding of the words like "behemoth" and "adaptation" but gives enough context to add that word to young viewers' vocabulary without getting pedantic. Great information in a rich visual context.
