This year Kate Bush made history by being the first woman to achieve a number one with a self-penned single- Wuthering Heights and Cricketer Ian Botham was the first man in history to score a century and take 8 wickets in 1 inning of a Test match. There was still a lot of trouble in 1978 with the IRA this year and there is a gift to modern medicine with the invention of artificial insulin.
