Restoration – stories about unearthing hidden beauty, whether that beauty lies in places, objects or people;
Fun – light hearted stories that are fun, happy, playful, and bring us joy;
Food – stories that celebrate food, including how it's grown, prepared, and eaten, and all the ways it connects and shapes us as individuals, families, and cultures;
Heroic Pursuits – stories that pay tribute to courage: honoring the bridge builders, risk takers and people who inspire us to live kind, brave, and intentional lives.
The program budget is In the US$75,000-150,000 range for half-hour programs, US$200,000-300,000 for one-hour programs.
