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. 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. It tapes into fact retrieval in the curriculum, expands the information beyond fact retrieval, and most importantly, it addresses what educators call non-cognitive factors for student success. These factors include self-esteem and frames in which students see learning occurring.

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 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.

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 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.
