The farm when the towns people came to help, was due to crops being damaged by bugs. The Chinese aircraft air dropped food, generator and supplies.
I miss the show, too bad CBS killed it off. It wasn't because of ratings. That show had got national and world attention. Remember "Nuts" and the CBS headquarters received just over 20 tons of nuts, which revive the show for a second year, a very short season.
