Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. "Animal Atlas" remains on course as a program that is entertaining and engaging to a wide audience while managing to deliver information that would be very welcome in a middle or high school classroom. 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 animal kingdom has an innate richness of color, form and motion and "Animal Atlas" episodes are built from this richness. 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.

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. There are three fundamental educational benefits to this format. First, it taps into fact retrieval in the curriculum. Second, and more important, it expands the information beyond fact retrieval. Third, and most important, it addresses what educators call non-cognitive factors for student success. These are factors that can measurably improve student achievement without specifically involving material to be tested. These include self-esteem and frames in which students see learning occurring. By removing information from the academic silos where it is generally taught and moving it, literally, to the mall, it forces s synthesis that is difficult to achieve in an academic setting. The fact that correct answers are given by diverse ethnicities and ages, by both genders, and not by sterotypes of 'smart people' is essential. It means that anyone can own information. The fact that young people will see this on television in a non-academic setting is also very important. Whatever the curriculum or information, knowledge becomes the star - and is demonstrated by every type of person.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. "Zoo Clues" has 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. "Animal Atlas" remains on course as a program that is entertaining and engaging to a wide audience while managing to deliver information that would be very welcome in a middle or high school classroom. 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 animal kingdom has an innate richness of color, form and motion and "Animal Atlas" episodes are built from this richness. 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.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. "Zoo Clues" has 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. There are three fundamental educational benefits to this format. First, it taps into fact retrieval in the curriculum. Second, and more important, it expands the information beyond fact retrieval. Third, and most important, it addresses what educators call non-cognitive factors for student success. These are factors that can measurably improve student achievement without specifically involving material to be tested. These include self-esteem and frames in which students see learning occurring. By removing information from the academic silos where it is generally taught and moving it, literally, to the mall, it forces s synthesis that is difficult to achieve in an academic setting. The fact that correct answers are given by diverse ethnicities and ages, by both genders, and not by sterotypes of 'smart people' is essential. It means that anyone can own information. The fact that young people will see this on television in a non-academic setting is also very important. Whatever the curriculum or information, knowledge becomes the star - and is demonstrated by every type of person.
