sound design, recording and reinforcement.

"Thanks to the excellent sound recordist, Richard Douglas-Green, we ended up with a truly representative recording of the particularly good Steinway at Sherwell Hall, University of Plymouth.  There is no editing, no post-production.  Just the piano and mics plus occasional audience movement."  - Lola Perrin, Oct 2008

Quote from the Folk on the Moor Website

Few clubs are as lucky as FOTM when it comes to sound... for we are able to call on the services of the amazing green ltd. team! Our guests have always remarked on the skill and expertise these two have; they've even received offers to tour as sound crew...! But that's hardly surprising when you experience their quality.



Richard Douglas-Green, now in his sixties, made his first recording at the age of seven, when the service of carols was recorded by his school. This triggered a fascination with the whole process of recording so at the age of thirteen, from the proceeds of his paper round, he bought his first tape recorder, an Elizabethan. This was upgraded to a Grundig within a year.

It seemed obvious that with his love of sound and radio he should want to join the BBC upon leaving school. Indeed, this was the only job he applied for!

His 22 years in the BBC were varied.He was based in Cardiff, Bristol and,latterly, Plymouth, working in radio and on the sound side of TV. However over the years he was also a TV floor manager, director and radio producer, gaining experience in front of the microphone as well.

In his early forties, having trained up many people, he decided to go into education and became a Senior Lecturer in Sound and TV production.

This he did for 17 years, until the lure of a redundancy package made him decide to go back to his first love - sound recording and production.

green ltd is the outcome of what started as a paying hobby, although some funding still comes from training university students with learning difficulties.

How super to be able to work with such talented musicians and writers and be part of their creative process. One day he might even get a proper job.

Lucien Douglas-Green, one of Richard's sons, hasn't managed to totally escape involvement in the business. He has become a capable sound mixer, rigger and office manager - good experience for greater things to come.
