WONDER WHY? SENSES
CTV Television Network, 1990. VHS cassette, 23:30, $195.00. (Wonder Why, 13).
Volume 19 Number 3
Scientist Richard Zurawski and his young co-hosts, Liam, Lori and Maya, use their five senses to explore the world around them in this up-beat program geared to children seven to eleven years old.
Zurawski leaves most of the program in the able hand of his co-hosts, appearing only briefly to introduce each segment. The program features a lively mix of factual information, interviews with other kids, tests and experiments, a formula that should appeal to an audience primed by TV.
The information is presented logically and it offers a genuine learning experience. The technical quality of the production is high; however, the writing is at times sloppy. Though the program has its merits, the price tag is steep, a fact that will no doubt limit its appeal for many libraries. Limited performance rights.
