Papua New Guinea, a South Pacific island between Asia and Australia, is a country broken up by mountains and thick, tropical forests. A country with over one thousand tribes and over seven hundred languages, a country of ancient cultures. In the span of one lifetime, it was colonized by Germany, Britain and Australia, invaded by Japan, and finally became an independent nation by UN mandate. This program details the first unsupervised election in 1977 and the candidates on the campaign trail.
