British Documentary Traces 'Illuminati' Insider

British TV documentary traces Illuminati insider to Hertford
Hertfordshire Mercury | September 16 2004

A SINISTER secret society said to control the world's governments has members living in Hertford, according to a documentary to be aired on Sky One.
The Mercury can exclusively reveal that the mysterious sect, the Illuminati, who are believed to be bankers, power brokers and politicians, have a base in the town.
Formed in Bavaria in 1776, the group is said to have high-powered members including George W Bush and his presidential rival John Kerry, who joined a branch called the Skull and Bones, while at Yale University.
Conspiracy theorist's claim that the society is "bent on world domination" in a shadowy behind the scenes bid to control us.
As part of Sky's series on conspiracy theories, journalist Danny Wilson met with Hertford man and insider Tim Acheson, in a bid to meet an Illuminatus.
Tim has a family connection with the secret sect the Knights Templar, a powerful society dating back to the Crusades, which has many links with East Herts and is said to know where the Holy Grail could be.
But he denied a link with former US secretary of state Dean Acheson, a well known Templar, who was in President Truman's inner circle during the 1950s.
Cryptically he told the Mercury: "I cannot talk about my family connections. The older members of secret societies want to keep them secret, whereas some of the new blood are a bit more open.
"I do know two members of the Illuminati who live here, but I must protect their identities.
"There are powerful and dangerous forces at work here and I cannot risk getting on the wrong side of them."
The Mercury were given a sneak preview of the show The Illuminati, Our Secret Masters, which will be aired on Sky One at 9pm on Thursday.
Tim, a reporter for conspiracy theory website, is seen driving through Hertford with the TV presenter.
They drive to a deserted industrial estate near the town and wait for the shadowy figure to turn up - but Wilson begins to think that he's been led on a wild goose chase.
Finally Tim returns to tell him that his contact has "got cold feet" and has backed off meeting the press.
Speaking to the Mercury this week Tim said: "It is very difficult to get them to reveal themselves as you can understand but I hope that it may happen at a later date.
And he promised to reveal more of Hertford's hidden secrets.
He said: "Hertford is more important as centre of mystery and intrigue, both historically and contemporarily, than most people realize."
The programme is one in a four-part series on conspiracy theories showing at the same time every Thursday in September.
