This brand new five part documentary seeks to discover the truth behind the ancient rituals and closely-guarded practices of the world’s oldest social network, taking viewers exclusively behind the scenes in the run up to its 300th anniversary in 2017. Very excited to officially announce that the first episode of the forthcoming Sky 1 documentary series ‘Inside the Freemasons’ will air on the 17th April at 8pm.
Inside The Freemasons features footage of Freemason ceremonies, never before seen on television, and learns the truth behind the ancient rituals and closely-guarded practices, as viewers get to know members from all walks of life and discover what it really means to be a Freemason in 2016.
While most of us are familiar with the concept of Freemasons, few can describe who they are and what they do with any confidence or accuracy. What has motivated generations of men to join its ranks? What does the symbolism mean? How does public perception differ to reality? And what does Freemasonry have to offer men and society in the 21st Century?
Emporium Productions, who were commissioned by Sky to produce the series, have this to say on their website: ‘Welcome to one of the oldest social networking organisations in the world; a fraternal order that welcomes members regardless of their status, creed or political persuasion – Freemasonry. With unique and unprecedented access to the Freemasons, Inside The Freemasons asks who are Freemasons and what do they do? As the United Grand Lodge of England celebrates its tercentenary in 2017, we go beyond the myth and legend to discover what it means to be a Freemason today through the words and lives of Freemasons themselves.’
