Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. This exciting series, which aired on WUAB's secondary digital channel "This-TV" throughout the 4th quarter 2011, thrusts the viewer into the dramatic fray of the War of Independence - as seen through the eyes of two kids who've been taken in and given jobs as roving reporters by the Renaissance man of the Revolution, Ben Franklin. British teen Sarah sees both sides of the war and doesn't like either while American teen Gregory is a passionate defender of freedom and liberty. French orphan Henri, who's also been taken in by Ben, may be younger than his new "big brother" and "big sister," but he often sees most clearly. The series is packed with action yet it confronts moral decisions head on. It's not concerned with the politics of history, but uses the drama of the events as a backdrop for the conflicts faced by its protagonists.

AQUA KIDS, which aired in the aforementioned time period on WUAB's main digital channel one-time-only on 12/24/11, is a half-hour weekly series that provides core programming in the area of biology and specifically, the ecosystem related to the ocean, its tributaries and estuaries. Children can learn about the resources of the oceans and how protection of the oceans is necessary to present and future generations. Not only does the show teach biological topics, but it aims to enrich children's lives by making them aware of future generations, the role they play now, and for generations into the future, with the biggest ecosystem on earth - the oceans. Each episode provides information related to a specific topic and gives an educational approach to understand the topic as it relates to the entire ecosystem of the earth. AQUA KIDS uses the technique of near-peer mentors i.e., children to teach other children. Each episode employs these mentors (called Aqua Kids) who ask questions and experience firsthand the experience of the topic. For example, children might feed manatees to experience the graceful, gentle nature of the animal and learn about their biology or dig through piles of silt dredged from the ocean depths to look for shark teeth to understand how shark continually grow new teeth and lose old rows to teeth. NOTE: This was a special additional telecast of the program series and was a different episode from the AQUA KIDS episode that aired earlier on 12/24/11 at 7:00AM.

Each episode provides information related to a specific topic and gives an educational approach to understand the topic as it relates to the entire ecosystem of the earth. AQUA KIDS uses the technique of near-peer mentors i.e., children to teach other children. Each episode employs these mentors (called Aqua Kids) who ask questions and experience firsthand the experience of the topic. For example, children might feed manatees to experience the graceful, gentle nature of the animal and learn about their biology or dig through piles of silt dredged from the ocean depths to look for shark teeth to understand how shark continually grow new teeth and lose old rows to teeth.
