Synopsis

BBC television drama miniseries based on the life of Lord Mountbatten (Nicol Williamson), the distinguished naval officer who served in the First and Second World Wars, and who was asked by Prime Minister Clement Atlee (John Rolfe) to oversee the transition of power from the British government to newly-independent India in 1947. Against a backdrop of violence and rioting, Mountbatten negotiates with the charismatic and driven figures who will come to dominate post-independence India, including Nehru (Ian Richardson), Gandhi (Sam Dastor), and Mohammed Ali Jinnah (Vladek Sheybal).
