Ok, this movie I watched as part of my science class. It is a 1980's-90's PBS Sci-fi mini series about light.

I think there was at least 6 episodes. It was a live action, and the show was about 4 kids.

If I remember right it was staged in a barren desert like place or planet.

The thing I remember most though is how they had to find this giant ruby pendant about the size of a person's palm to either make a laser, or fire a laser, at the bad guy destroying him.

    Tomes and Talismans? – Adamant Jun 25 '16 at 20:57
  • If it is Tomes and Talismans, it is a duplicate. – Adamant Jun 25 '16 at 22:11
  • Yes I'm pretty sure that is it based on some of the comments made about later episodes. Unfortunately I can't actually check to be sure since the episodes got taken down. Thank you. This was driving me crazy – teardrops2m Jun 27 '16 at 0:56

I think you are talking about Tomes and Talismans, and I think it's episode 4. There is a description at this website, and the events seem to correlate to the episode about skimming the card catalog to find information.

There is one episode available on youtube, uploaded by Mississippi Public Broadcasting, Episode 1:

The series was originally done by Mississippi ETV (Educational TeleVision) as an explanation of a library and the various parts of a library that existed at that time, and how to use them.
