Episode 8 is the second of a two-part exploration of the medicinal practices of the "Peyote" (Huichol) Indians of Mexico by Benedict Allen. It was recorded from UKTV Documentary in 2007. The series "Last of the medicine Men" examined the dramatic and mysterious world of shamans and witchdoctors around the globe, focusing on the harmonious, herb-gathering Mentawai of Siberut, the shamans now bizarrely emerging in urban Tuva, the Vodou practises of Haiti. Episodes 7 and 8 focused on the Huichol of Mexico - where perhaps the most traditional community of north America gave Benedict Allen the rare privilege of ritually taking their peyote, the hallucinogenic cacti, to bring him at last "face-to-face" with the gods.
