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.

While travelling to exotic locations and writing about enlightening experiences may sound like an adventurous occupation, the life of a travel writer is not always as glamorous as it seems. Filmed in 36 countries across six continents, each half-hour episode reveals the real story of professional travel journalism - the truth behind the byline, and reinvents the way travel shows are currently presented.
