The long awaited first episode of the documentary series ‘Inside the Freemasons’ will be broadcast on Easter Monday, 17th April 2017, at 8pm on Sky 1.
Sky Television have commissioned and financed a 5 part documentary which has been produced by award-winning executive producer Emma Read and Emporium Productions. Emporium Productions are specialists in creative and original popular factual programming set up in 2015 by Emma Read and leading UK independent television production company, Hat Trick.
Viewers will be taken exclusively behind the scenes of Freemasonry which is one of the oldest social networking organisations in the world; a fraternal order that welcomes members regardless of their status, creed or political persuasion. While most of 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?
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, it goes beyond the myth and legend to discover what it means to be a Freemason today through the words and lives of Freemasons themselves including W.Bro. Dr. Andy Green and several other members of the Wyggeston Lodge.
The one hour episodes will be broadcast on consecutive Mondays. Sky 1 may also be viewed by Now TV, Talk Talk and Virgin Media customers, and the series will be available on DVD after the full series has been broadcast.
