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. Grouping animal behaviors and physical characteristics into groups from a human point of view holds the series thematically together. Episode 101 explains how animals use their extraordinary senses in ways that we can't. Episode 102 creates an animal "Olympics" where animals are put together in an athletic competition based upon their statistics. It is always kept in perspective by putting the feats in human terms, such as when the leaping ability of a flea is compared to a human high jump of hundreds of feet. The music is cinematic and supportive. The narrator's everyday tone keeps everything in perspective for adolescent viewers (examples: "sounds complicated, doesn't it?" and "let's investigate!") while keeping it interesting for adults. The pull of the Mystery Animal visual quizzes and the fun of Animal Oddities make the show more interactive and will no doubt lead to interesting social media posts by viewers. The information presented is so rich and mindboggling that Zoo Clues is one of those rare programs that would work visually with the sound off-or as a radio show with no visuals at all.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Mama Mirabelle's Home Movies is designed to promote preschool children's appreciation and understanding of animal life and to foster their recognition of ways in which animal and human experiences are similar and different. For ages 2-6, the series has four educational and informational goals: (1) to foster understanding of animal customs and behaviors, (2) to encourage reflection on similarities and differences between their own lives and the animals' lives, (3) to introduce preschool children to an array of different animals in the kingdom and enrich their ability to describe and communicate about them and (4) to motivate preschool children to appreciate the wonder and beauty of animals and animal life. In each episode, children will be immersed in a topic that will be the basis of a compelling story with a problem and resolution. Sample topics include: grooming habits, communication, caring for the young, eating habits, shelter, etc. Children will leave the episode with a simple, clear understanding of how this topic can play out in the animal world. They will be exposed to a variety of situations/customs that will invite them to consider how this topic plays out in their own lives and what it means to them, e.g., what does shelter mean to me? How do I deal with cold weather? How do I communicate? etc.

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. Longneedle maintains the concept of a program with all the content, engagement, and age-level appropriateness for a solid E/I rated series while adapting a format that makes the program genuinely interesting to the extended general audiences. It has expanded the education value of the program with video inserts, graphs and maps for deeper explanation, and a format respecting the knowledge of its participants. On The Spot is a series tapping knowledge across a series of subject areas: geography, art, technology, science, math, history, language, music, and sports. It also addresses general cultural knowledge. The format is a series of seemingly random questions to individuals who are either of school age or adults past the age of high school graduation. There are three fundamental educational benefits to this format. First, it taps into fact retrieval in the curriculum. Second, and more important, it expands the information beyond fact retrieval. Third, and most important, it addresses what educators call non-cognitive factors for student success. These are factors that can measurably improve student achievement without specifically involving material to be tested. These include self-esteem and frames in which students see learning occurring. By removing information from the academic silos where it is generally taught and moving it, literally, to the mall, it forces a synthesis that is difficult to achieve in an academic setting. The fact that correct answers are giving by diverse ethnicities and ages, by both genders, and not by stereotypes of smart people' is essential. It means that anyone can own information. The fact that young people will see this on television in a non-academic setting is also very important. Whatever the curriculum or information, knowledge becomes the star-and is demonstrated by every type of person.
