Centenary of the Assassination: June 28 2014

One hundred years exactly to the day.

Expect an avalanche of TV and Radio programmes over the next few months. After a flurry of programmes in the first three months of the year there was a lull. Now there should be some heavy duty items coming on-line, and some of them will be the start of  long running series.

Archduke Franz Ferdinand and his wife Sophie pose for the camera shortly before their ill fated official visit to Sarajevo on 28 June 1914.

It took only two shots at point blank range from Gavrilo Princip’s Browning pistol to fatally wound the royal couple.
