Russell Howard’s Good News
Russell Howard’s Good News ran for nine series on BBC Three and then BBC Two. It was a topical studio clip show hosted by Russell, sometimes with guest comedians.
It won a few awards, reached 3 million viewers a week and was regularly the most watched show on iPlayer across all BBC Channels.
This show was where I learned how to turn around topical material quickly and (mostly) efficiently.
My title on the show evolved from programme associate, to writer, to producer.
My specific role on the show was as a writer/producer, adding content in the writers room, pulling the scripts together and communicating with other departments on the requirements of the week.
