This winter, a Sky documentary will shine a light on one of the world's most secretive organisations: The Freemasons. 'Inside The Freemasons' promises to be the most in-depth look ever at the organisation as it prepares to celebrate its 300th anniversary next year.

The four-part series will feature footage of ceremonies that have never before been seen on TV, in order to discover the truth behind the organisation's rituals and closely-guarded practices.

The team gained unprecedented access to the United Grand Lodge of England and its Lodges all over the country, and will introduce viewers to members of the comradely order.

Expect plenty of myths to be dispelled as the show reveals the truth behind legends like the regalia, the jewels, the handshakes and the symbolic working tools.

It will be produced by Emporium Productions.

"With over 200,000 members across England and Wales, the Freemasons is a fascinating organisation that the general public don't really know much about," said Siobhan Mulholland, commissioning editor, Sky Factual. "We can't wait to use this unique access to show Sky customers the real Freemasons as we look at little known history and traditions, determining myth from truth."
