- 9PM Thu 31 May 2012C4
With unprecedented access this revealing film takes viewers inside the little known world of the Unification Church, commonly known to outsiders as the Moonies.
Married to the Moonies follows three British youngsters as they travel to Korea to be blessed by their messiah, Reverend Moon, at one of the movement's controversial mass weddings.
The three undertake a condensed courtship - meeting and making plans for the future with a person they hardly know.
Twenty-two-year-old psychology student Elisa has decided to make her own wedding dress for the big day.
Twenty one year old Reamonn has been matched with a girl from Argentina he hasn't even met. The cameras follow him to the airport as he meets his future bride for the first time.
And 20-year-old Naomi from south London is matched with her future husband just days before the ceremony.
