In this first episode, Mark travels to the mountains of Eastern Nepal,
where Thangmi is spoken, to show how communities are preserving and
reviving their speech forms.

identity and explains why it's so critical for linguists to work with
indigenous communities to document and protect these vanishing voices
before they disappear without record.*

The series has its own set of web pages on the BBC site that can be

Episodes two and three cover the linguistic landscape of South Africa and
New York City, and will air 11:00-11:30 on Monday 10 and Monday 17 December

These programmes will be archived as podcasts for the forseeable future.
