Query:   Dear list

I am looking for TV documentaries and films about Endangered Languages, or
where language endangerment or revitalization is part of the story told. I
am only aware of two such productions: ''Vanishing Voices'' on Chulym
(Turkic) by American PBS and ''De lêste lûden fan in taal'' (''The last
sounds of a language'') by Frisian Television, also on Siberian lgs, I
believe. But surely there must be (many?) more?

I will post a summary.
Thank you for your help.
