    We follow photographer Chris Rainier as he travels around the world, from India through Paraguay to Papua New Guinea, to face a crucial challenge, photographing the essence of language itself. Accompanied by two linguists, he photographs locals speaking a previously undocumented language on the northeast frontier of India, records a shaman ceremony in the Pantanal of Paraguay, and films the initiation dance of an indigenous tribe in Papua New Guinea. It's Chris's life-long objective to photograph the traditions of endangered cultures before they are lost forever but he knows time is running out. More than fifty percent of the world's 7,000 languages may be extinct by the end of the century, and Chris sees his pictures as cultural documentation for future generations - a portfolio of iconic images that may be used to revitalize cultures and languages.

    Sitting Bull, Season 2 | Episode 1

    Sitting Bull: the great chief who defied the US authorities and led the American Indians in a major massacre of US soldiers. Is this legend really true? Through examining the details of his so-called greatest crime, the Battle of Little Bighorn, and from new oral history passed down through generations to his great-grandson Ernie LaPointe, Sitting Bull's true story can be revealed. On 25th June 1876, Lieutenant Colonel George Custer and his 7th cavalry attacked Sitting Bull's village near the Little Bighorn River. Battle analysis with Bob Kershaw, author and military analyst, suggests the victory was not the result of Sitting Bull's military strategy but the Lakota's individual fighting skill. Through a series of errors on Custer's part, his attack plan was doomed. Archaeological analysis shows the Lakota and Cheyenne had far superior weaponry and the secret of their success lay in guerrilla fighting style. Evidence from LaPointe's family history and contemporary interviews reveal that Sitting Bull does not even fight in the battle. He chose to stay and protect his family group. LaPointe explains he was actually a spiritual leader, a sun dancer for his people. However, so shocking was the defeat that the authorities needed a villain. And Sitting Bull was moulded by the US media to fulfill this need and thus was born the myth.

He sails to the Indian Ocean to complete his task. In a few years, he seizes three ships, but also gains a reputation as the most wanted pirate on the seas. His trial centres on the taking of one ship in particular and vital defence documents are missing at trial, where they deliberately concealed?
