Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming Immediately and intensely the series draws the teen almost viscerally through the quick pace of the gorgeous, almost psychedelic visuals and the pulsating, catchy inclusive lyrics "we 're all in this together," "Just like you and me." The plot quickly unfolds with an urgency "it is now or never...we have to save humanity from wickedness, hate, violence and pollution." The temporal frame is contemporary and shows teens engaged in usual adolescent activities---eating, playing sports, shopping , driving cars, flirting and using electronics to kill the bad guy/germs. Age-appropriate developmental conflicts emerge within this framework. The viewer learns that David, the protagonist, has not been in contact with his scientist father who may know how to save the world.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming Wild America is targeted to children ages 13-16. The key educational objective of the program is to familiarize children with the animals of the North American continent and their interaction with other animals and their environment. Throughout the series emphasis will be placed upon protecting endangered species and the impact that humans have while interacting in their environment. Each episode of the series will be specific to a particular animal. Topics will range from basic food gathering, mating, natural enemies, relationships to other animals, and the interaction of the specific ecology on the survival of the species. We expect the children viewing the program will achieve a greater understanding of nature and specific animal species because of the up-close and detailed photography of the series. Through this understanding, it is hoped children will better relate to the natural environment as it exists in North America and learn to protect its natural species.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Wild America is targeted to children ages 13-16. The key educational objective of the program is to familiarize children with the animals of the North American continent and their interaction with other animals and their environment. Throughout the series emphasis will be placed upon protecting endangered species and the impact that humans have while interacting in their environment. Each episode of the series will be specific to a particular animal. Topics will range from basic food gathering, mating, natural enemies, relationships to other animals, and the interaction of the specific ecology on the survival of the species. We expect the children viewing the program will achieve a greater understanding of nature and specific animal species because of the up-close and detailed photography of the series. Through this understanding, it is hoped children will better relate to the natural environment as it exists in North America and learn to protect its natural species.
