Flashback Friday – 1988

It’s that time of the week again, time for our Flashback Friday, and this year we’re going back to 1988.

It was Australia’s bicentenary year and a leap year, Bob Hawke was our Prime Minister, and John Bannon was South Australia’s Premier.

Home and Away first graced our television sets, and so did A Current Affair.

In football, the 50 metre penalty was introduced into the VFL, and the Hawk defeated the Demons in the Grand Final.

Australia won the Rugby League World Cup against New Zealand in Auckland, and the Summer Olympics were held in Seoul.

Boeing’s 747-400 took its first ever flight, while the addictive properties for nicotine were discussed in a report.

Enzo Ferrari, the founder of Ferrari, died at age 90.
