Russell Howard gives his upbeat and entertaining take on some of the key news stories of the week, as well as highlighting some of the more bizarre items that have caught his eye during his forensic trawl of the week's events - looking at over 60 news channels from across the world, reading over 140 newspapers and watching over 1,000 clips each week.

The royal wedding joins the many other major stories going under the Good News spotlight, alongside some the best things Russell and his team have unearthed online.

And as always, each show is signed off on a high with an often under-reported feelgood tale of triumph, courage or kindness.
