“Of the 6500 languages spoken in the world today, only half will make it
to the next century,” says poet Bob Holman, one of the founders of the
Endangered Language Alliance and host of a new travel series
spotlighting the cultures of endangered languages, premiering
February 1, 2012, on LINK TV. “While endangered plants and animals
are protected by law, who is looking out for the cultures and ways of
life held in these words? That is the heart and mission of this series.”
Encounter the distinct cultures and peoples of West Africa, Asia and
the Middle East in the three-part documentary On the Road with Bob
Holman and discover ancient languages on the brink of extinction.
Each of the half-hour shows, produced by Rattapallax in association
with Bowery Arts and Science, will air on Link TV, which is available on
local cable channels, DVD, online, and on DirectTV channel 375 and
Dish Network channel 9410.

Travel the road not taken, with Bob Holman, in On the Road with Bob
Holman, beginning February 1, 2012, on LINK TV. More info at
