In each episode, Jane encounters a challenge that tests her problem solving skills and requires her to demonstrate her strength of character, as a Knight of the King's Gurar. Sometimes Jane learns a moral lesson and other times she uses analytical ability to illustrate how a problem can be made less complicated and easily solved.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Pearlie is an animated comedy series based on the children's book series Pearlie the Park Fairy by Wendy Harmer. Pearlie is an optimistic, light-hearted fairy who sees the good in everybody, but often gets into situations because her desire to help is larger than her capacity to deliver. Aimed for an audience within the 4-8 year old range, Pearlie focuses on the importance of following the rules, using good judgment and learning how to avoid getting into trouble. Since Pearlie was appointed by Fairy Head Quarters (HQ) to keep Jubilee Park in sparkling order she has constant challenges with her basic goal of keeping everyone happy and making sure the park functions smoothly. Pearlie's nemesis and cousin Saphira, often takes advantage of Pearlie's good nature which requires that Pearlie must also frequently outwit the park bully. In each episode, we see Pearlie approach new tasks and problems with a great deal of enthusiasm, but without the organization required to get the job done. Through plot developments and with the assistance of her friends, Opal and Jasper, she learns what to do and what not to do in each situation so the park can be restored to order.

This may include information on any other noncore educational and informational programming that you aired this quarter or plan to air during the next quarter, or any existing or proposed non-broadcast efforts that will enhance the educational and informational value of such programming to children. See 47 C.F.R. Section 73.671, NOTES 2 and 3. THE MORE YOU KNOW WEBSITE: The More You Know's website (www.nbc.com/tmyk) features scripts from the award winning public service announcements, referral information for other organizations referenced in the PSA'S, a general campaign overview, and educational materials produced in connection with NBC programming. The site also includes a list of the campaign's most recent accolades. THURSDAY'S CHILD: This is a segment of our newscast each Thursday. Dia Davidson, one of our dayside anchors takes a different child out each week that is in the social service system in Lexington and up for adoption. She spends the entire day with them, getting to know the child, spending quality one on one time with the child. She then does a news segment featuring the child and asking interested viewers to call the number on the screen to inquire about adoption. Children have received wonderful loving families to be a part of as a result. LEXINGTON HUMANE SOCIETY: Each day on our 1230 pm newscast a representative from the Lexington Humane Society appears at the end on the set with the anchors featuring a different animal. It may be a cat, dog, guinea pig, armadillo, rabbit, etc. These are healthy animals up for adoption. Information relating to the type of animal it is, its nature, what kind of home it needs, etc are given to educate the viewer about specific kinds of animals. Viewers are encouraged to call the humane society's number on the screen to adopt. We have made a lot of little children happy with these opportunities to adopt a homeless animal.
