    ''turn back time'' and ''go back in time"


    Hi,
    Do these expression mean the same please?

    Let's turn back time a little to the late 1940s, the early' 50s.
    Let's go back in time a little to the late 1940s, the early' 50s.

    Thanks.

    This reminds me of the R. Kelly's song, If I could turn back the hands of time; which shows prefectly that you may say it differently.

    Sure you will bump into other ones elsewhere.
