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.[1]

A gritty series, King Cinder by John Foster, pitches two teenagers, played by Peter Duncan (Kerry) a speedway bike rider and Lesley Manville (Nicky) his girlfriend against a criminal gang running an extortion racket run by nasty Todd Edwards (Michael Hawkins) and Hells Angel Daniel Abineri in a South Coast fictional seaside town called Barton. The series concludes with a climatic ending where Edwards driving a red Austin Maxi chases a running Kerry through a quarry only to see Edwards crash over a cliff.[2][1]

The executive producer was Anna Home.
