The 1970s were times of change, socially and politically. The decade is heavily associated with horror stories related to the IRA, who were linked to over 40 bombings and a number of fatal attacks. Society became disenchanted with the political and economic status of the United Kingdom which led to the formation of Punk groups. To learn about this fascinating decade, read one of our newspapers from 1979. Personalise your certificate of authenticity and this newspaper is a unique and entertaining keepsake gift.

1979 Newspaper Headlines

The year 1979 marks the fall of Phnom Penh in Cambodia and the collapse of the Pol Pot regime. The Khmer Rouge retreat west at the beginning of January and one of the most unforgettable, brutally violent and shocking attacks on a society finally comes to an end. Another incredible event from the year 1979 is the election of the first ever British female Prime Minister: Margaret Thatcher. Bringing the Conservative party into government, Thatcher’s election is a monumental historic landmark.

Two families flee East Germany in a balloon, Britain’s first nudist beach is established, and the Smallpox disease is officially driven to extinction. These 1979 headlines will be described in detail within original newspapers that were printed on the day the news spread far and wide across the world.
