Rainbow City is a British television series made by the BBC and shown in 1967.
The series is notable for being the first British TV series to feature a black actor, Errol John, playing the lead character. John starred as John Steele, a black solicitor and the series dealt with his personal and professional problems living and working in the multi-ethnic community of Birmingham. Also highly significant was the fact that Steele's marriage was inter-racial. Steele's white wife Mary was played by Gemma Jones, who would go on to star in the BBC's 1970s period drama The Duchess of Duke Street.
