TV Shows - Makers, Problem Solvers, and Innovators

Goals

To continue filling in the attached spreadsheet and find additional television shows that deal with makers, problem solvers, and innovators. For each show, provide 1) its name, 2) its network, 3) its country of origin, and 4) a brief 1-2 sentence description. Include as many non-english-speaking programs as possible. Geographical scope is global.

Early Findings

During this hour of research, we were able to find six additional television shows that meet the requested criteria and organized our findings in the attached spreadsheet beginning with row 29. We also transferred the shows listed in this spreadsheet so as not to repeat any information. Non-English-speaking shows that we found during this hour air in Japan, India, and Pakistan. Our findings indicate that Asian countries (i.e. China, Japan, and Korea), India, and Spanish-speaking countries will be where we're most likely to find additional relevant shows.

Proposed next steps:

You need to be the project owner to select a next step.
We could start by continuing with our current research path to find 32-40 additional television shows that deal with makers, problem solvers, or innovators and include them in the spreadsheet beginning with row 35. For each TV show, we could provide 1) its name, 2) its network, 3) its country of origin, and 4) a brief 1-2 sentence description. We would list our sources in column E. We could focus on non-English-speaking shows wherever possible. Our geographic scope would be global. In addition, we'll continue filling in the blank spaces in our spreadsheet with the info that you provided in yours.
In addition, we could provide 2-3 insights related to TV shows about makers, problem solvers, or innovators. For each insight, we could 1) describe what it is, 2) explain why it is relevant, and 3) provide 2-3 pieces of qualitative or quantitative data to support it. Our geographic focus will be non-English-speaking countries wherever possible, although we may expand this scope to include English-speaking countries if necessary.
