    Help me find out what this is.


    It was a spacey sci-fi thing. It had a guy in spacesuit who gets a hole in it . He patches the hole and the epoxy/glue in the patch bulges out in a large bubble . I can't remember if he snuffs it or not. It couldn't have been that strong or adult a film because I remember this from my pre-school days ie mid 1970s. I was wondering if it was UFO but I never really watched that as a kid.

    any ideas?

    This has bugged me for literally decades!

    The film/show certainly existed, as I remember the same key points Keith mentions.

    Can't remember the title of course!

    There was an episode of UFO like that I think the episode it was in is called Flight Path staring George Cole where he has to shoot an alien ship down on the moon surface at the end of the program.

    There also was one were Foster has to team up with one of the aliens to survive. The title appropriately was called Survival it could have been this but I most strongly think it is the former.

    It was in UFO as you say SPOILER GC dies thats why I think it is that one, but in the seccond one the alien dies :eek:

    Yes, I think the suit gets ripped and they apply a patch and some epoxy but before long the epoxy starts to bubble.
    I have the second series on DVD but not the first so I cannot check.

    I have just had a look round and have found this link to a good description of Flight Path and it sounds very much like it although does not mention the bubble.

    It was George Cole and the glue bubble scene is still there :thumbsup: I found an old VHS that a mate sent me from the early late 80's, when Anglia was the only ITV region that repeated UFO (usually at some ungodly hour).

    Great that's one mystery solved. Just need to discover the wherabouts of the ark of the covenant and what Lost is all about and my life will hopefully be entirely devoid of mystery.

    cool

    UFO - a severely underrated show.

    Miserable stories where the good guys didn't always win
    Depiction of women and people from ethnic minorities in positions of command

    All this in 1970 was well ahead of its time (and the much more heralded developments in Star Trek).

    Well overdue for an remake/updating, methinks.
