The Witch Doc­tor Will See You Now

The Weekend Australian - Review - - Television -

Tues­day, 9.40pm, SBS Two If SBS Two wants to rein­vent it­self as the think­ing young per­son’s chan­nel, it will have to do bet­ter than pro­grams shown years ago on pay-TV. Still, for those who don’t pay for the priv­i­lege of hun­dreds of ex­tra chan­nels this is a chance to catch up. You’ll know if you’ll be able to stom­ach this con­fronting pro­gram if you can make it through the ti­tle se­quence, in which the heart is re­moved from a live chicken and placed in the palm of some­one’s hand, among other atroc­i­ties. But be­fore we get too judg­men­tal, it is worth re­mem­ber­ing that when most of the world goes to the doc­tor, th­ese are the things they ex­pe­ri­ence. In this de­but episode, host Piers Gib­bon takes two un­well Western men to Hong Kong to see if snake blood can fix them.
