In the late eighties/early nineties I watched a film on the television. The only scene I remember clearly was when the hero is on a desert like planet. Massive great big spherical rocks were flying into a tunnel in which a machine remelted them and reformed them back into spheres. They were then fired back out of the tunnel. I don't know why.

Then the next bit I remember was that the man went down the tunnel (it was very dangerous to do so) and climbed onto the gantry and took a hammer to the controlling computer and tried to destroy it. But every piece he smashed off floated out a little way but then floated back into place. The machine was indestructible and self-repairing/healing.

  • Hi, welcome to SF&F! You can improve this question by checking the suggestions for writing a good story-id question. For example, do you remember what channel it was on, or what language it was in? – DavidW Apr 18 at 19:57
  • I saw it on TV in the UK, so it would have been the BBC, Channel 4 or ITV. No idea what language it was in, I don't recall any speech. The above is all I can remember about it! I'd love to see it again though. – ollie Apr 19 at 9:25
