Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. It is during the adolescent years that career exploration, planning, education, and decision-making begins. There is no question that a career in one of the multimedia industries is among the most popular career choices of adolescents. Although many feel their calling is for a more obvious "on-camera" career in acting, there are also a number of "behind the screen" pursuits that make for fulfilling career choices. Made In Hollywood: Teen Edition (MIH:TE) was created by Connection III Entertainment Corp. to provide career information and advice from top Hollywood professionals to 13-to 16-year-old- viewers so they can "explore and learn about the technical, artistic, craative, business, and administrative careers that are a part of the motion picture, television, music video,and home entertainment industries" (Berry & O'Neil, 2006, p.1) To guide the production of MIH:TE, Berry (2006) developed a career and guidance model that offers a framework for the development of each episode. This program meets the definition of "core programming" because it serves the educational and informational needs of children 16 years and under; it airs between 7A and 10P; it is regularly scheduled; it is 30:00 in length; it displays the E/I symbol throughout the program and the educational/informational objective and target child audience for this program are provided to program guide publishers. This program will air on our second digital channel only.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Pajanimals focuses on teaching bedtime routines and practicing them consistently so children can get a good night's sleep. In each episode one of the main characters-Apollo the dog, Squacky, the duck, Sweetpea Sue, a horse, and Cowbella, a purple and white cow-has difficulty sleeping or faces a problem. They all pile onto one of the beds and are whisked off to a land of adventure that offers solutions to their problems. Each bed travels to a specific place for the adventure: Squacky' s bed goes to Ellie the octopus who lives in the Big Blue Sea and to Coach Whistler who lives in Land of Play; Cowbella's bed goes to Edwin, who lives in Storybook Land and to Jerry Bear, who lives in the Big Friendly Forest; Apollo's bed goes to the Moon who is in the Night Sky, and Sweetpea Sue's bed goes to Mr. Happy Birthday, a porcupine who resides in Birthday Land, and Bedtimes Bunny who lives in the Land of Hush. Each show ends with the problem resolved and the Pajanimals tucked into their beds for a good night's rest.

The show uses an entertaining format to test how well young people know the information contained in their own national curriculum. Then, On the Spot explains the answer to each question. The approach of testing first and explaining the answer second has been shown to enhance retention and understanding. On the Spot challenges viewers to recall middle and high school knowledge about history, science, math, English, second languages, health, geography, art, music, and technology, and then teaches them the answer. Among a field of narrowly-focused programs, On the Spot stands out as most the scholastically diverse and enriching educational program on the market.

Host Sean drives around in a bus fully equipped with art supplies and a kitchen, ready for any assignment. The projects encourage parent engagement and often feature families working together to make something to display within the child's home.

The art projects typically promote utilizing recycled materials in order to demonstrate that creativity can transform something intended for one purpose into something that achieves a completely different goal.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Justin Time is an animated show specifically directed to the preschool audience and always conveys an embedded lesson; it is possible to understand and manage any problem you have by thinking about it creatively. Justin is a little boy who has two imaginary playmates, Olivia (who meets him on his travels) and Squidgy the sponge (who also lives in Justin's bedroom). When Justin has a problem or doesn't want to do something his mother has suggested, he daydreams his way into an adventure that takes him to places all around the world. On these adventures, he meets Olivia who guides him through an experience that demonstrates to Justin how he can solve his problem. The show provides many facts about the context the characters visit while on the adventure, but the central point is to teach a lesson about a social/emotional dilemma universally experienced by preschool children.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Lazy Town is a show featuring the importance of health, fitness, and being good friends. Set in a fantasy world known as Lazy Town, which is populated by inactive residents, we meet a visitor named Stephanie who is determined to coax her friends and relatives into adopting a healthful, active life style. She wins over her new friends, Ziggy, Stingy, Trixie and Pixel, convincing them to leave their gaming consoles and candy stashes at home so they can go outside and play. She persuades her uncle, Mayor Milford Meanswell, and his friend Ms. Busy Body to support her efforts. Robbie Rotten, who lives underground, and is determined to return Lazy Town to its former state of inactivity and quiet, constantly foils the characters' efforts. Coming to the rescue is the athlete Sportacus who lives in a zeppelin-like aircraft and receives signals from the kids or the Mayor whenever they need help. Sportacus has two goals, to keep the peace and to promote healthful, positive living. When Robbie Rotten is discovered and contained through comic pratfalls, he returns to his underground lair and all is well in Lazy Town, until another day and another time when Robbie will rise again.

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 6-10 year-old range, episodes focus 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, Pearlie approaches 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.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Poppy Cat is based on the Poppy Cat's Adventures book series authored and illustrated by Lara Jones. A narrator, also named Lara, reads a story to her cat in each episode. This story stars her Poppy Cat, who envisions and takes his friends on imaginary adventures. The friends are Zuzu, a Dalmatian who zips around on a skateboard; Alma, a southern belle bunny who is ultra-feminine and sweetly dramatic, Mo, a little mouse who tries his best to do as much as everyone else despite his size; Owl, the wise one who is prone to neck rolls and commentary when things irritate him or don't make sense, and the grouchy Egbert, an arrogant and obnoxious badger who refuses to play with the group and invariably attempts to sabotage their adventures. Occasionally Hilda, a forgetful and ditzy pigeon who flies into their adventures, appears to say hello or provide misguided directions to the friends. Once their mission is accomplished, the friends return to their little village and resume their cheerful, active lives. At the conclusion of her story, Lara closes her book and says good-bye to Poppy Cat, who is usually ready for his nap.
