Season 13, Episode 4

When electricians showed up to repair the municipal power lines, farmer Marius Theron and farm workers had to supply tractors and materials and assist the electricians with repairs. Farmers around Pearston in the Karoo describe the detrimental knock-on effects that municipal power failures have on farm and town households. Together with Eskom loadshedding, and the broken power lines of the Blue Crane Route municipality, the workers suffer extreme losses. (Filmed in 2003)
