This short video from Former Chief Rabbi Lord Jonathan Sacks demonstrates how to perform the blessing over the bread on Shabbat according to Orthodox Ashkenazic tradition. Complete with an explanation about why bread is considered the most significant food, this video breaks down the ceremony into practical steps. With an accompanying on-screen transliteration of the blessing, this video is particularly helpful for beginners. The video is from the YouTube channel of The United Synagogue, the largest synagogue body in Europe, comprised of 64 British Orthodox Synagogues with over 40,000 members.
