100 years ago, chauffer Leopold Lojka took a wrong turn whilst driving the Austro-Hungarian Archduke through Sarajevo. One wrong turn enabled Gavrilo Princip the chance to approach the car and assassinate the Archduke and his wife - an act that plunged the world into war and cost the lives of millions of people. 
Join David on a talk about how the world reacted to this event adn how one wrong turn changed the world forever.
