IN ITS first year on air, Channel 5's share of viewing has increased by more than 50 per cent, but is still only four per cent of total television viewing, writes Janine Gibson, Media Correspondent.

Since its March 1997 launch, Channel 5 has successfully increased its capacity through new transmitters and satellite broadcast. Last weekend, a special about the Titanic achieved its highest-ever Sunday share of viewing, with 5.1 per cent.
