Russell Howard's Good News Extra

Series 2

Episode 1

Duration: 45 minutes

First broadcast: on BBC ThreeLatest broadcast: on BBC Three

Russell Howard returns with a new series of the hit show whose debut run was the most requested BBC Three programme on iPlayer in 2009 and the channel's most successful studio-based entertainment show ever.

With each episode put together just days before transmission there's no knowing what will feature, but the series will see Russell turn news-junkie once again as he puts his spin on the week's headlines, as well as highlighting some of the more overlooked stories that have caught his eye as he sifts through the papers, news websites and TV news channels.

The programme is recorded in front of a live studio audience, but viewers at home will have the chance to shape the news agenda by submitting stories online at (where they will also be able to view exclusive extra features) or via Twitter at Show less
