Sky 1 is to air a four-part documentary series on the Freemasons in the run up to the social club's 300th anniversary.
Inside The Freemasons aims to discover the truth behind the secret brotherhood with exclusive footage of ceremonies and rituals carried out by its members.
Produced by Emporium Productions, the show goes behind the scenes at the United Grand Lodge of England in a never before seen look at the headquarters of Freemasonry.
Emma Read, executive producer for Emporium, said: “We’re thrilled to have been given such unprecedented access to the hidden world of the Freemasons to make a documentary series. Most people are familiar with Freemasons as an organisation, but few actually know who they are, what ‘Lodge life’ is really like and why men join in the 21st Century.”
“As we approach our Tercentenary it is fitting that we mark this auspicious occasion by very openly sharing a look at who we are, what we do and what we stand for," said John Hamill, Director of Special Projects at the United Grand Lodge of England.
"We hope the programme will help inform, educate and even surprise, providing a genuine insight and understanding into Freemasonry and Freemasons today.”
Inside The Freemasons is due to air this winter.
