It started in 1977 and continued publication until 1992. The Toktok might be described as the Solomons' first tabloid newspaper with its own version of sensationalist reporting (one early headline: 'Sex and Politics in Honiara - a husband's lament'). It came out in competition with the government-owned Solomons News Drum (PMB Doc 415) and was intended to have more popular appeal.
