King Cinder is a six-part British children's television serial made by the BBC in 1977. It was first shown between 2 November and 7 December 1977 on BBC1. A gritty series, King Cinder by John Foster, pitches two teenagers, played by Peter Duncan a speedway bike rider and Lesley Manville his girlfriend against a criminal gang running an extortion racket run by nasty Todd Edwards and Hells Angel Daniel Abineri in a South Coast fictional seaside town called Barton. Possibly one of the best final chase scenes on children's British television in the 1970s where Edwards driving a red Austin Maxi chases a running Kerry through a quarry only to see Edwards crash over a cliff. The executive producer was Anna Home.
