World of Wonder Resurrects Celebrity Call-In Show Ring My Bell

Has it really been that long? More than two decades after Ring My Bell first launched in 1991 as a Channel 4 UK live broadcast, the World of Wonder series is being dialed up for a second Web revival. The first episode premieres on the company’s YouTube channel Thursday, March 21.

In case you’ve forgotten, the show – which got a previous Web makeover in 2006 – very simply connects a celebrity and inbound callers. Some of the earliest programs featured Al Sharpton and Boy George. From today’s announcement:

Fenton Bailey, documentary making mogul, reports that Dutch public television, in an effort to capture the country’s dwindling youth market (and piss off their Muslim population) will air Deep Throat and his documentary about it, Inside Deep Throat. Arie Slob, the fractievoorzitter of the Christian Union party, denounces the film:

It is a historical symbol of unashamed sexual exploitation and of perverse greed. The film brought 600 million dollars into the box office, but it also ruined a human being. The so-called star [Linda Lovelace] later declared that she was pressured into her ‘acting’.

Bailey points out that most films ruin someone’s life.
