ITN Roving Report: Ghana

  • Story ref: X22106401
  • Contains: 13 Clips
  • Format: imx 30

Reporter: Keith Kyle

Report from Ghana, focusing on its leader Kwame Nkrumah and his efforts to turn the ex-British colony into a modern, socialist state with a thriving economy. Underpinning the report is the question of whether a one-party state, with a single charismatic leader can be successful in an African context.

'Roving Reports' was a series of documentary reports produced by ITN News from around the world, broadcast between 1957 and 1964. Black and White B/W material.
