An interesting and entertaining series on American English, its varieties and how the language is changing just aired on PBS in the United States. The program will probably be repeated sooner or later and is also available on DVD and tape.

You all might enjoy checking out the website that accompanies the series:

What an interesting program! I'm calling to request a copy of the DVD today to use in my ESL classes.
