Freely Expressed Wishes of Southern Cameroons / Ambazonia

This is a documentary series about the history of the former Trust Territory of British Cameroons. It is released in seasons and episodes, a format that will allow more people (historians / journalists / students / enthusiasts) to continue the series by creating additional seasons that focus on particular topics, time windows etc... To make this possible, this documentary is being released as a community project. Are you interested in developing a new series? Contact us - we will be happy to work with you! 

As a community project, all the material used to create the series are available online, to enable students and teachers take conversations into the classroom and read the documents that support the film scripts.
