A brief history of the lecture
In 1978, the National Electronics Council instituted an annual prestige lecture and the first lecture was given by The Earl Mountbatten of Burma.
Following his assassination the following year, the lecture was renamed the Mountbatten Memorial Lecture in his honour.
In 1999 the NEC was wound up and the Mountbatten Memorial Lecture is now organised by the IET.
