Martin tries to find the cause when there is a severe outbreak of diarrhea in the village. When his initial suspicion that the water in the swimming pool at the recreation centre proves false, he baldly announces on Caroline Bosman's radio show that the village's water supply must be the culprit. He's unaware however that similar accusations three years before, subsequently proved false, nearly ruined the village's economy. Bert Large sees a business opportunity and sells water from his natural spring, but he also has a falling out with son Al who wants to go away to school to study computers. Written by garykmcd
