Topical comedy show in which Russell Howard offers up his unique perspective on the news stories that have dominated the media over the past seven days. In search of the weird, the wonderful and the just plain odd, Russell and his crack team plough through over 60 news channels from across the world, read over 140 newspapers and watch over 1,000 clips all for your viewing pleasure. While there is no way of knowing what tangent the world of news will take, Russell will, as always, be joined by special mystery guests and sign off the show with an often under-reported feelgood tale of triumph, courage or kindness.

Russell Howard's Good News is filmed in front of a live studio audience. Viewers at home can shape the show's agenda by submitting news stories online via Twitter @bbcgoodnews.
