Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Animal Atlas continues its tradition as a series that blends animal images with information on a wide range of life science issues in a manner that is entertaining and clever. The episodes from this season again combine facts, comparisons, and reflections on broad concepts with an engaging narration that targets the 13-16 year-old age range in both vocabulary and interest level. The "Elephant's Recall All" episode uses animal mass as a launching point for information about prehistoric animals, oceanic mammals, nonmammalian species, and African animals. The series is rich with interesting details that support examination and curiosity. Examples include these: The whale shark, not the elephant is the biggest animal (30,000 pounds); Dolphins have moustaches (nearly invisible); Giraffe are the tallest animal (at nearly 20 feet, 3,000 pounds) while African elephants are the biggest animals on land (14,000 pounds). The narrative keeps viewers interest with non-pedantic information imaginatively chosen--such as the close relationship between bears and dogs, the note that an elephant trunk has more muscles (40,000) than the entire human body, and the differing number of toes in elephant species. The program maintains educational integrity while remaining entertaining to its target age group with such devices as intercutting facial close-ups of a gorilla and a chimp as reaction shots, a narration that often addresses animals instead of the human audience, and a wonderfully whimsical musical score. Visuals, not facts, lead the content. The use of clear and colorful graphics is excellent as support for concept clarity. Size comparisons are done in silhouette, typical in state-adopted textbooks and the global map with highlighted ranges elephant species is necessary for geographic context at the 13-16 year-old age range. Additionally, there is a wide range of visuals that support viewer interest from underwater photography to close-ups of animal morphology and an editing style that includes fast cuts and split screens to better make comparative points.
