בן יהודה -Hebrew Revival Video
Interesting video about Eliezer Ben Yehuda, the man who helped revive Hebrew as a spoken language.
I recommend reading the following book about the revival of modern hebrew: "Tongue of the Prophets - The Life Story of Eliezer Ben Yehuda by Robert St. John". It is a very insightful book about the processes of taking a liturgical language and transforming it into a everyday spoken language. You can find the book somewhere on the net as ebook or PDF download.
