Sunday Masonic TV

In case you are planning on being a whopping layabout on Sunday and looking for some informative programming, the National Geographic Channel will be airing two shows of interest to Freemasons this Sunday October 7th, beginning at 1:00 PM EST.

Knights Templar examines the myths and mysteries of the legendary medieval order. The Templar have recently gained attention in the pages of the best-selling novel The Da Vinci Code, where they are presented as the protectors of the Holy Grail. Modern conspiracy theories suggest that the Knights Templar still exist in secret to this day - and still protect a vast and mysterious treasure. NGC separates fact from fiction to reveal the true story behind these legendary warriors.

Then at 3:00 PM EST:

It is a secret society that is said to have shaped world events for more than 1,000 years. Members have been found everywhere, from the World Bank to the United Nations, from the Pentagon to the top ranks of major corporations. They have been accused of controlling the money supply through the Federal Reserve, and throughout history they have been present everywhere, from the Boston Tea Party to the French Revolution. They are the Freemasons. But who exactly are they?


  1. I am sure we can count on the National Geographic Channel to be every bit as impartial and non-sensational in their investigation of the Freemasons as the Discovery Channel and the History Channel.

  2. It's pretty accurate. But because the real explanations aren't creepy enough, it uses eerie music and a way too dramatic narrator to make up for what it lacks in real sensationalism. And at least they don't interview David Icke.

  3. Just as a note...
    The show on Discovery Channel is (to the best of my knowledge and with some authority, however I have been known to make mistakes) the same show you will see on NG. It is not very often you will see this as they are competing channels. Also the producer for the show is a fellow mason.

  4. What I like about this particular show is that it showcases interviews with Brent Morris, Tom Jackson, Robert Cooper, Robert Hieronimus and others, along with having the cooperation of Naval Lodge in Washington DC. And the historic reenactments are well done. It's a very high quality, decently budgeted, well-written program.
