Each episode takes young viewers on a journey through the animal kingdom to learn about the lives, history, and varying adaptations that allow animals to survive and thrive in the wild. The series strives to present a wide variety of information in a number of interactive and poignant sequences to make knowledge of the animal kingdom both simpler and easier to remember. It's through this engaging information and rich visual content that allows viewers to better understand and appreciate the animal world around them.Relying on the rich visuals of the world of animals, the series' writing ties together images and actions in nature with educational and informational themes. It is impossible to watch an episode without learning some fascinating fact about the animal kingdom. As digital photography has progressed, the images on the series have grown more colorful and detailed and each episode has some eye-popping image that a zoologist twenty years ago would have killed for. For the targeted viewers 13-16 years-old, it builds on natural curiosity and adolescent-friendly topics like weapons, groups, and inherited behaviors.

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 a synthesis that is difficult to achieve in an academic setting. The fact that correct answers are giving by diverse ethnicities and ages, by both genders, and not by stereotypes 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. Target age group teens 13-16.
