Duration: 45 minutes

Russell Howard presents the hit show whose previous series pulled in up to 3.5 million viewers a week and is regularly the most watched show on BBC iPlayer across all BBC channels.

Once again Russell 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 - incredibly looking at over 60 news channels from across the world, reading over 140 newspapers and watching over 1,000 clips each week.

While it is impossible to know what news will feature in this totally topical show, smart money must be on the royal wedding joining the many other major stories going under the Good News spotlight. All this will sit alongside some the best things Russell and his team have unearthed online, while, as always, each show is signed off on a high with an often under-reported feelgood tale of triumph, courage or kindness.
