The highest viewing ratings in the history of Greek television were recorded last night during the presentation of the contest prize to Helena Paparizou by the Ukrainian President, 94.2% of the Greek population tuned in to see Helena Paparizou take posession of the coveted gold trophy.

At the time when the Ukrainian president, Viktor Yushchenko, was handing the golden prize to the Greek winner, it is estimated that 94.2% of the televiewers had tuned in NET, the 2nd channel of the Greek state broadcaster. During a press conference in Kiev earlier today, the president of the Greek broadcaster, Christos Panaghopoulos, said: The unprecedented viewing ratings (of the programme) prove that the Eurovision Song Contest is an extremely important event for ERT in commercial terms.
