Nose wheel touch and go skip to 0:40 in .. or watch the start of the video the aircraft shows some nice manoeuvrability

High crosswinds, and he's got a lot of flap deployed. Bad combination.

The higher coefficient of lift makes for issues with gust response. Also your "upwind" wing and deployed flaps get hit full blast, while the downwind wing gets partly blanked by the fuselage so you get assymetric lift. Annd if it's gusts instead of steady, they get the blasts of air at different times, too. The exposed flap upwind acts like a sail creating extra drag and creating yaw, and the upwind wing gets more flow/lift than the downwing lift, lifting it, and then it starts to turn on you. So you're getting added instability in pitch and yaw at the same time. Big enough gust can cause a very bad day, especially when down in ground effect (not happening in the video), where the coefficient of lift is even worse.
Usually you see this with general aviation guys, not with guys flying heavies. It's better to come in a little hotter than normal with a shorter approach and with reduced or no flaps with strong crosswinds. It gives less surface area and lift differential (turbulence and/or instability), and you spend less time (smaller distance to travel while also a higher velocity) on approach exposed to the wind beating you up and pushing you off the center line.
You'd be amazed how many guys dial in full flap deployment at your local GA airport, though. Usually the inexperienced guys who are fighting it all the way in. These guys in the video might have been caught by a surprise gust, or were just not experienced enough, but it is surprising to see someone in commercial air letting themselves get bounced around.

According to a couple of Airbus pilots it's pretty easy to get into a roll like that when hand flying in high winds. The best solution is to let go of the controller and let the aircraft recover itself.

It's pretty easy to get into PIO if you're not careful with any crosswind gusts at lower speeds. You move to correct, and just as fast you're through the gust, so now you're rolling quickly the opposite direction. Bigger and bigger inputs trying to correct.

Yeah it is, but from what they were saying the computer on the Airbus makes it a lot easier to get into them faster than other aircraft. They called it stirring the pot, hence my comment. It's easy to get out of by simply letting the computer deal with it. Doesn't make it a bad aircraft, just one you have to be more careful hand flying.

That looks suspiciously like the Australian Bicentennial airshow in 1988 at RAAF base Richmond in Sydney. I was there for that.

I wish they would put a camera on the nose of it which allows VR goggles to see the action....thinking on why isn't there a camera on space craft or space stations where we can use VR to have a look around?.
