‘Inside the Freemasons to be broadcast next Monday’

Don’t ask me how or when television viewers in the United States might be able to watch this documentary, but Sky TV will broadcast “Inside the Freemasons” beginning next Monday at 8 p.m. in the United Kingdom.

Originally a four-hour series meant for broadcast across four evenings, the film was expanded to five hours. In addition to Sky1, the series will be shown on Now TV, TalkTalk, and Virgin Media also all in the U.K. The United Grand Lodge of England will make DVDs available for sale after the series has been aired.

Sky Television in England will be saying welcome to Freemasonry. Having been granted 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, the presenters go beyond the myth and legend to discover what it means to be a Freemason today through the words and lives of Freemasons themselves.

Produced by Emporium Productions which was set up in 2015 by award-winning Executive Producer Emma Read, and leading UK independent television production company Hat Trick, the five one-hour programs will explore what lies behind the familiar concept of Freemasons, and ask:

  • 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?
