Togoland (MIFF 1957 , United Nations)
Director: Brett Porter

The story of the first plebiscite ever held in a United Nations Trust Territory, when the people of Togoland in Africa decided by vole to join the adjoining Gold Coast and go on to independence as a part of that nation under its new name of "Ghana".

Working together with the local chiefs, elders and the resident British District Officers, the United Nations Plebiscite Commission teams set up election machinery and saw the actual vote produce evidence of the peoples' wishes.
