Many of my good decisions were lovely accidents. How very, very un-Mountbatten of me.

That last episode they were talking about was very sad as it was filmed in Ireland and there was a scene where he called his grandson that was killed with him in that terrorist attack.

He loved Ireland to bits

Interesting to see that even in 1969, there was so much toadying deference and forelock tugging to the big I am swaggering multi uniformed Mountbatten. He had the ego of George Patton and Bernard Montgomery combined. But Patton and Montgomery got down in the thick of it. For my own part I simply cannot believe he did not know he was pompous. I bet his grim wife told him he was a pompous ass. I wonder how he would have dealt with being interviewed by Andrew Neil.

It's interesting watching Mountbatten speak.  For a number of years I've noted that some people think he is actually Prince Charles' father.  I'm certain that some of the mannerisms of this man have been passed on to Charles.  Just my thoughts.

Jesus they just talk in such generalities. Wtf are they even talking about? Challenge him on a specific decision or action!

I can’t help seeing him as pompous and arrogant. It must be nice to be so certain of yourself. His likeness toPrince Charles is probably inherited but Charles is a kindly person with no arrogance.

1:10 - "the audience enormous" - hardly surprising back in 1969 when there was only two proper full time TV stations in the UK, BBC 1 and ITV and a part time BBC 2 channel - so not much choice for people back then, of course millions would watch.

why no one has mentioned the incapability of colonialists to rule properly both before and after the WW's and tat they simply could not afford to have any sort of direct control over their colonies and it was too expensive for such activity what do u mean gave them "FREEDOM" freedom was taken very rightfully never given LOL.

The west has a caste problem and it is the problem of class, the untouchable worker and the holy capitalists, the great phenomenon of western capitalism.

It's always hard to believe someone talking so reasonably can be an abuser of children, which is what is strongly suspected of this man. I suppose one indicator of the capability is the cold, calculating, and consummately entitled attitude he exhibited. Our elites are groomed, at public school, for this repressed version of humanity in order that they can wage war in our name, making decisions without conscience that may result in the death of millions and the destruction of the environment. Society as a whole is culpable in creating this psychopathic behaviour, largely through willful ignorance, deference and lack of self responsibility, that allows elites to emerge and to wreak havoc around the world.

A military man from age 16 in WW1 !!! The real deal. As military men from all nations men in a position of command are trained to never admit they don't know, are unsure or are wrong. If one did the men under them would loose faith and question everything. Not good for moral and unit integrity. The remarks about sexual misconduct needs to be questioned due to the source. J.Edger Hoover running the F.B.I and a closet homosexual was the one who said their MAY be evidence showing this. Coming from Hoover who had files and " dirt " on most everyone and was a most disgusting and unscrupulous individual in modern history. I question the allegation. I personally commend, respect and thank Mountbatten for a lifetime of service, and I'm not even British.

He was killed
By a car bomb planted by the IRA
Such a sad loss he was wonderful

His funeral on tv

This is a truly remarkable man. What an amazing life. The carping reporters are typical of the sort that seem to dislike anybody extraordinary.

He messed up the partition of India.... Big big time.... Killing 1 million people just because of his haste to exit India.

I don't feel the British accent in his English. Is it because he stayed out of Britain for a considerable part of his life ?

What a great man he was. I can't believe reporters were so annoying back then. The goofy reporter is trying so hard to find his faults .

If you watch video, Lord (uncle Dicky), Mountbatten leaving India, and, 10,000s of people chasing him, happily, as is "somewhat shown" in movie "Viceroy's House" (he was A GREAT Viceroy). My great-great-grandpa and grandma, Edward VII and Queen Alexandra, respectively, II Emperor and Empress of India, are how we're connected. They REALLY vilified him from "doing his job" which WAS TO PROVIDE A PEACEFUL TRANSITION.

How ridiculous that people can't respect that they will not always be right . Human nature is to make mistakes , but the fear of being judged , rejected or so inferior ...can make a person to live with such denial . To be a great man is to be able to accept ones mistakes .

As an historian I can only say he was self serving his whole life. He wanted the Windsor’s to change their name to Mountbatten. He wanted to rule Britain.

Deian Louis Francis A V N G Mountbatten:
My late father Louis Mountbatten who by 1945 managed to beat Adolf Hitler's unbeatable Wehrmacht was bashed down and forced into the predicament where he had to justify and explain his strategies and why achieving the impossible victory cost so many lives of Allied servicemen. The lesson learned from having had to land more than once in France's Normandy region after D-Day Dieppe was that if one is expected to be victorious against the strongest army in Europe it can only be achieved with huge sacrifice of soldiers on all sides, not to forget the horrendous suffering of anybody within any theatre of war, because war is evil, because weapons are evil, no matter in whose hands weapons are. The reason for their blame-game was that all those who were sitting at home in their posh livingrooms and deep down in their bunkers while my late father was set up and risked his life and almost had his arse shot off were celebrating Victory Day waving to the cheering crowds and promised that if they were allowed to still stay in power despite the catastrophes they were responsible for all could simply butch on as before with their corrupted bibles in their hands on their speedway to hell and against God's will. My late father was the rightful King of the United Kingdom. Yours sincerely, Deian Louis Francis Albert Victor Nicholas George Mountbatten, 27 Dale Street, Cambois, NE24 1SB, United Kingdom of Great Britain. www.facebook.com/deian.mountbatten
