Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. BEN FRANKLIN HIRES AN AMERICAN TEENAGE BOY, A YOUNG ENGLISH LADY AND A FRENCH ORPHANED BOY AS REPORTERS DURING THE REVOLUTION FOR HIS NEWSPAPER, THE PENNSYLVANIA GAZETTE. THROUGH THESE REPORTERS AND THEIR TRAVELS TO ORDINARY HOMES AND BATTLEFIELDS, FROM VIRGINIA TO MASSACHUSETTES AND THE ROYAL COURTS OF FRANCE AND ENGLAND, THE VIEWER IS EXPOSED TO THE ISSUES WHICH PROMPTED THE COLONIES TO SEEK FREEDOM. THROUGH THE EXPLANATION OF THESE ISSUES BY HISTORICAL FIGURES, SUCH AS JEFFERSON AND PAINE, THE VIEWER ALSO LEARNS THE IMPACT THESE ISSUES HAVE ON THE LIVES OF ORDINARY CITIZENS. LIBERTY'S KIDS WILL BE BROADCAST ON KBSI'S MAIN PROGRAM STREAM (CHANNEL 22-1).
