Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. 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. SPORTS STARS OF TOMORROW is a weekly "magazine" series that showcases up-and-coming young athletes whose talent and hard work are making them winners. Each episode includes a variety of news features that highlight the featured athletes' success in sports, as well as the hard work that's gotten them that far. Family members and coaches are introduced, too, allowing viewers to get a better idea of the many people involved in each athlete's achievement. Although the show focses on the players' athletic prowess -- and the awards and scholarships they've received because of their talents -- it also presents these young athletes as regular kids, many of whom spend their time volunteering, tutoring children with learning disabilities, and even being elected prom queen.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. The series Zoo Clues will keep 13-16 year-old viewers engaged for 30 minutes with the nearly infinite visual richness, animal characteristics, and wild range of animal behaviors. Beyond its target audience, both older and younger audiences should find this look across the amazing world of animals fascinating. Beyond basic engagement, Zoo Clues will leave viewers with a meaningful perspective about animals and meaningful comparisons to their own human characteristics. The variety of the animal kingdom is truly odd and bizarre enough to read like fiction, but the clever narration of Zoo Clues links disparate information together in a way that always makes clear that what viewers see is real, natural, and relates to their own life in the real world.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. The series Zoo Clues will keep 13-16 year-old viewers engaged for 30 minutes with the nearly infinite visual richness, animal characteristics, and wild range of animal behaviors. Beyond its target audience, both older and younger audiences should find this look across the amazing world of animals fascinating. Beyond basic engagement, Zoo Clues will leave viewers with a meaningful perspective about animals and meaningful comparisons to their own human characteristics. The variety of the animal kingdom is truly odd and bizarre enough to read like fiction, but the clever narration of Zoo Clues links disparate information together in a way that always makes clear that what viewers see is real, natural, and relates to their own life in the real world.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. 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.
