Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Animal Atlas in previous years has maintained a high level of educational value. It has addressed issues appropriate for both general public and the secondary classroom with a presentation that included large numbers of clips, wide ranging photography, fast-paced editing, and a non-condescending vocabulary level. The programs in the latest series of Animal Atlas happily maintain those strengths. It is differentiated from previous years by its sense of humor. Entertaining the viewer with wit and observation augments the educational integrity of its content. The level of humor, like the level of vocabulary, is most suited for middle school (ages 13-16) with applications of topic that could extend into the higher grades. There are sound cues, visual elements, and a general tone that supports the delivery of educational material in a way that is appropriate for entertainment television. The data delivered and the content communicated is absolutely educational in nature and value but done in a way that would hold the attention of the target viewer. While the program is consistently humorous, a middle school teacher could construct textbook test materials that would be applicable to Animal Atlas. Examples of content covered: The determinant classifications of the ape and monkey primate families; the comparison of structure and function of species physiology; the emphasis on the recent scientific replacement classification of smaller apes for lesser apes.
