Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. This series is designed to encourage young viewers to accept and value diversity. Each week the team of young Stargate trainees enter a new world. As they encounter cultures, races, and life forms foreign to any they have ever dreamed of, they also face life-threatening problems that require each member of the team to contribute to the well being of all. As the young cadets learn to interact with and value "people" from different backgrounds and cultures, so too will the viewing audience. The trainees model many of the attitudes and behaviors that today's young people must learn in order to function well in a highly diverse society. The episodes emphasize getting along with others who are very different from oneself, working well with one's own team, and the individual character traits and abilities that go into the making of a good Stargate warrior - and, of course, a good person. This program is specifically designed to further the educational and informational needs of children, has educating and informing children as a significant purpose, and otherwise meets the definition of Core Programming as specified in the Commission's rules.

Include any other comments or information you want the Commission to consider in evaluating your compliance with the Children's Television Act (or use this space for supplemental explanations). This may include information on any other noncore educational and informational programming that you aired this quarter or plan to air during the next quarter, or any existing or proposed non-broadcast efforts that will enhance the educational and informational value of such programming to children. See 47 C.F.R. Section 73.671, NOTES 2 and 3. In connection with construction of the digital facility authorized in FCC File No. BDISDTA-20090318ADO, the Licensee of KBFX-CA took the analog facility off the air on August 26, 2010. The Licensee notified the Commission of its silent status on August 26, 2010. Construction of the digital facility was completed on October 7, 2010. The Licensee's digital license application is pending in FCC File No. BLTTA-20101018ACF. As the digital license was filed with the FCC on October 18, 2010, the Licensee refers to its call sign in Item 9(b) and this Item 17 as KBFX-CD (rather than KBFX-CA). However, as a technical matter, the Licensee was required by the FCC's filing database to file the instant report under the call sign KBFX-CA. The Children's Television Programming Report herein reflects children's television programs aired on KBFX-CD's digital facility. KBFX-CD is proud to support the children of our community with a variety of community outreach projects. Many of our projects utilize our airwaves, in conjunction with nonbroadcast efforts. Each week, local public service announcements specifically designed to serve the educational and informational needs of children, in our judgment, are scheduled as well. See the station's public file for detailed information and additional nonbroadcast efforts which enhance the educational and informational value of its programming.
