I'm more inclined to space program - especially if it's actually written ___ program

If it was to do with TV it should be spelt programme.

How was it written? Was it ...Program or __(space) program?

A three point program is basically what it says. Summarising a task or goal in three bullet or key points.

Having said that I did initially think IIII/OOO was a four-eyed trio!! (and yes they do exist)

hi confab

So 3 point program and four eyed trio a little over the top I think.
These sort of things are often jokey (remember Catch phrase) so circles under the eyes is probably correct
