This is going to be along shot.
The only Fragment I have is the end of one scene.
There is for lack of better words, a jungle gym type device that recruits are climbing. The bars are different colors, and I think the colors indicated a change to the environment (Lights Noise or perhaps Weather) Despite all of this, the recruits are timed. An African American Female chracter climbs the contraption in a record time, and there is discussion about how “no female can beat that time” etc.
Possibly this could have been a tv series, but regardless, that is the only scene I can remember. If I had to date when I saw it, (note not when it was made) I would say 1985-90. Any help would be appreciated.
