5Text - 31/12/1997

Initially at launch, Channel 5 was the first of the main terrestrial channels not to have a commercial service provided by Teletext Ltd, with BSkyB providing content instead.

With it being the end of the year, news focuses heavily on New Years Honours too. The ancillary service for 5 can also be found in the 500s, although visually there was a lot less distinction between the commercial and ancillary services in the BSkyB days of the service.
