Description
Program Description
"KRMA, a non-profit public television station, has produced a new series of children's educational programs entitled 'Really Short Shows.' They really are 'Really Short Shows.' In fact, they run no more than a minute in length and target 4-8 year old viewers. Each program stars a local Colorado kid between 8 and 12 years old, who presents facts about his or her home town, academia, and fun, highlighted with a multiple choice quiz question to motivate interactive participation. "'Really Short Shows' air in place of standard promotional program spots daily between our regularly scheduled children's programs, continuing the televised educational process in a fun way. The series covers all areas of academia; history, science, geography, geology, mathematics, the arts, grammar, language, literature, social studies and culture. "The programs were produced all across the state of Colorado; the Denver Mint, Mesa Verde National Park, Dinosaur Valley, Colorado National Monument, an apple orchard, the national Mining Hall of Fame and Museum, the highest peak in Colorado, Four Corners National Monument, and many more locations. "Not only are the programs educational and beneficial for the viewers, but 'Really Short Shows' have given students all across Colorado the chance to truly learn about television, using their ideas, intelligence and imagination to create topical, informative and fun shows for Channel Six viewers of all ages."--1993 Peabody Awards entry form.
