An interesting program in YLE (Finnish Broadcasting Company, excuse me, Radiophoniae Finnicae Generalis) services. Nuntii Latini is, as the name says, current news in Classical Latin, the only internationally broadcast program of its kind in the world.

This program is available in Yle's FM radio channels (Ylen Ykkönen at least), and also from Yle's MW/LW foreign service.

It was launched in 1989, produced by Hannu Taanila, and edited by professor emeritus Tuomo Pekkanen and docent Reijo Pitkäranta of Helsinki University.

The language is classical Latin, but naturally, they have needed to adapt and form new words to describe the modern things... to some people, Latin definitely isn't quite dead, it just seems that way =)
