"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
