PBS is broadcasting the documentary 'The Linguists' on Thursday, 2/26,
at 10pm. Please check the website for your local listing:

The film's description from PBS:
The efforts of linguists Greg Anderson and David Harrison to preserve
languages on the brink of extinction are chronicled. Their journeys take
them to Siberia to record Chulym, a dialect now spoken by fewer than 25
people; to India, where an expressive regional language called Sora is
dying out; and to Bolivia to capture a language once spoken by healers to
the Inca emperor.

There was also an interview on NPR's Weekend Edition last Saturday 2/21
with David Harrison & Greg Anderson:

Linguistic Field(s): Anthropological Linguistics
                            General Linguistics
                            Language Documentation
