Freemasonry is one of the world’s oldest fraternal societies
dating back to the late 16th century, and now exists in various forms all over the world,
with a membership estimated at around 6 million.
Freemasonry has always been perceived as a very secretive and male dominated society,
with many conspiracy stories besmirching the crafts reputation.
“The Brotherhood” is a documentary series exploring the history and symbolism of Freemasonry,
but also investigates the perception that it is a highly secretive society.
