Review

In the first episode of this enlightening series about the ultimate old boys club, we met some of the men preparing for initiation. Now we dig a little deeper to find out what being a Freemason means to its members. So we meet a pair of builders and decorators from Gloucestershire as they set up a boxing event for charity, something that’s dear to the heart of the organisation. And the old story that masonry is just an excuse for “you scratch my back…” chumminess? That’s also addressed as two men undertake their coming-of-age Second Degree ceremony to become Fellow Craft Masons.

Summary

Cameras capture one of Freemasonry's most important ceremonies as the documentary continues to explore what it means to be a Freemason in the 21st century.
