Graham is joined by three familiar faces from the large and small screen - Oscar-winning Hollywood actress Nicole Kidman, Bafta-winning British favourite Julie Walters and Downton Abbey's Hugh Bonneville - who are all co-starring with a little bear from Darkest Peru in comedy movie Paddington. There's also music by Take That, now a three-piece, performing their new single These Days.
Graham Norton returns to the format he's most comfortable with since his Channel 4 days, briefly on BBC2 and now on prime time BBC1. Each week celebrity guest(s) join Graham to discuss what's being going on around the world that week.
The guests poke fun and share their opinions on the main news stories that have happened. Graham is often joined by a band or artist to play the show out with. Throughout series one the show was recorded on the Wednesday at 7pm before it's transmission at 10pm on the Thursday.
