They act in the shadows, they are extremely secretive and they practise ancient rituals. Secret societies play a far larger role in our everyday lives than we are aware of. Publications like those of bestselling author Dan Brown have brought them back into the limelight. The three-part documentary, ‘Secret Societies’, accompanies historian Dr Marian Füssel on his search for clues surrounding history’s most famous secret societies and conspiracy theories.
S01:E01 - The Heirs of the Knights Templar
The Freemasons are probably the secret brotherhood with the most members. Their fundamental ideals are, according to them, liberty, equality, fraternity, tolerance and humanity. However, others say that this secret society has very different goals, namely political power. This is mainly because of the self-imposed secrecy that was exploited in the past by criminal elements. The team investigates the history of the Freemasons back to its origins.
S01:E02 - The Code of the Illuminati
The secret brotherhood of the Illuminati was only active for ten years. They dreamed of having members of their brotherhood occupy crucial positions of power, thereby creating a new, fairer state. Banned as early as 1785, rumours that ‘the enlightened ones’ still exist in secret cannot be dispelled. The production team investigates the legendary Illuminati brotherhood, also exploring other secret organizations that allegedly have their roots in Antiquity.
S01:E03 - The Masks of the Conspirators
Did the Americans really land on the Moon? Who was really behind 9/11? Did Jesus start a family and what’s behind theories of attempted world domination by the Jews? ‘The Masks of the Conspirators’ investigates some of the most famous conspiracy theories of modern times, coming across half truths and blatant lies, but also some questions that are still unanswered.
