Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. 50.1 Animal Atlas continues its long series life by using technology to consistently improve the essential visual component of the episodes. The high definition video of the arresting animals and animal elements is well used to engage viewers and lead them through a sequence of valued and meaningful insights. One of the series strengths continues to be that it does not just present a list of animal facts but links a wide variety of information into sequences that make knowledge of the animal kingdom both simpler and easier to remember. The interstitial quizzes have become not just summaries of previous information but a lead-in to the next organized sequence of information. The tone of credited narrator Eric Schwartz is perfect for the target group of 13-16 year-olds. It is non-professorial and faux flip-again, ideal for the target mindset of selfconfident adolescence. Yet the vocabulary is rich. It presumes the understanding of the words like "behemoth" and "adaptation" but gives enough context to add that word to young viewers' vocabulary without getting pedantic. Great information in a rich visual context

The format allows a wide range of topics and allows topics to be blended. The program also succeeds in modeling all ages, races and genders as successful, knowledgeable individuals. Although there are right and wrong answers, there are right answers from people that every audience member can identify with so that they see a representative from their own group succeeding. In turn, it also allows viewers to learn respect for those outside their own group.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. 50.3 Come spend a 'day in the life' with the monsters at Wimzie's house and you'll never want to go home. It's the magical kind of daycare that leads to delightful adventures for the pre-school child. All of the characters are wild and wooly on the outside - but definitely human on the inside.After spending a half hour in this very special home away from home, no one will leave the world of Wimzie unchanged. It is the world where the real and the imaginary come together, where self esteem is the order of the day, where the emotions and the relationships of today's preschoolers, who are growing up to be ten in the year 2000, are on the top of the list of story material. Five year old Wimzie and her mother Graziella, an airline pilot, live in Yaya's house as does Rousso, Yaya's best friend - even if Yaya is at least one hundred years and fifty years old (and counting) and Russo is much more than a hundred years her younger. Graziella is more than ecstatic to have found a warm and comfortable home as well as a loving environment for her daughter, Wimzie, while she is off on her somewhat unorthodox work schedule flying around the world. It is within this setting that we meet Jonas, Archibald, Loulou, Horace, and Azuline as they work out the relationships that grow out of being together every day, of growing up just a little bit every day. They learn not only about themselves but also about the world outside the door: music, nature, art and fun are woven with a touch of humour throughout a storyline solidly crafted onsocio-affective objectives. Music, songs, the art of discovery. Rhymes, magic, the sharing of secrets with friends. Storytime, word games, the acceptance of "your" way. This is what Wimzie brings into the viewers' home. A daycare full of little monsters - what could be more real? Conflict, difficulty, resolution, triumph. Laughter, tears, anger and joy. Wimzie is a world of enchantment.

The format allows a wide range of topics and allows topics to be blended. The program also succeeds in modeling all ages, races and genders as successful, knowledgeable individuals. Although there are right and wrong answers, there are right answers from people that every audience member can identify with so that they see a representative from their own group succeeding. In turn, it also allows viewers to learn respect for those outside their own group.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. 50.1 Animal Atlas continues its long series life by using technology to consistently improve the essential visual component of the episodes. The high definition video of the arresting animals and animal elements is well used to engage viewers and lead them through a sequence of valued and meaningful insights. One of the series strengths continues to be that it does not just present a list of animal facts but links a wide variety of information into sequences that make knowledge of the animal kingdom both simpler and easier to remember. The interstitial quizzes have become not just summaries of previous information but a lead-in to the next organized sequence of information. The tone of credited narrator Eric Schwartz is perfect for the target group of 13-16 year-olds. It is non-professorial and faux flip-again, ideal for the target mindset of selfconfident adolescence. Yet the vocabulary is rich. It presumes the understanding of the words like "behemoth" and "adaptation" but gives enough context to add that word to young viewers' vocabulary without getting pedantic. Great information in a rich visual context
