Time again for the weekly flashback to past editions of the Port Lincoln Times and we go back 41 years to see who made the pages between January and June in 1978.

Who can you recognise from the pages of the Port Lincoln Times in 1978?

The Prime Minister was Malcolm Fraser and South Australia's premier was Don Dunstan.

In 1978 Star Wars topped the Australian box office but it was also the year Blue Fin, the Australian movie set in Port Lincoln and based on the book by Colin Thiele, was released.

In sport Australia won 84 medals; 24 gold, 33 silver and 27 bronze at the Commonwealth Games in Edmonton, Canada.

In the VFL Hawthorn won their fourth premiership with a three goal win against North Melbourne and it was closer in the SANFL with Norwood defeating Sturt by one point.
