The Hybrid Project

John Richards - Editor, By Meg Mcguirk, Project collaborator 19/12/12.
Originally from the BBC, John started his career in editing whilst working for BBC Wales in 1982. He has dabbled in practically every genre you could imagine, from documentary, to sci-fi, to romantic comedies, including titles such as Tibet, The Lost Nation, Undertaking Betty, and It's A Boy Girl Thing, and worked all over the UK as well as having a footing in Hollywood. Whilst in Hollywood, John worked on HBO's international award winning mini-series Band of Brothers alongside talents such as Tom Hanks and David Leland. n return to the UK, John returned to his roots, becoming part of the cult phenomenon that is Doctor Who, working with both Russell T Davies and Steven Moffat to bring the Doctor back into the homes of the British public (re-generation after re-generation after re-generation…). It's no real wonder then how John ended up as a key choice and part of AIR's core crew - and we're delighted. After working with Daleks and insane Timelords, AIR should be a breeze (no pun intended). If Doctor Who is anything to go by, Britain's idea of science fiction is constantly moving and shaping into something new, with Brits unafraid to step up and take part, John is amongst the forefront of its development - a talented strength in visual effects and CGI within to his cutting arsenal. I am delighted to announce that John Richards, who has worked as editor on BBC's Doctor Who,Stephen Spielberg's Band of Brothers and the recent Tv series Sinbad amongst his many accomplishments, has come on board with The Hybrid Project as Editor of the short film Air,

Richards had been with LBC for 16 years and was promoted to his current role in 2008. He began his radio career at Reading-based Radio 210 and then became a News Producer at BBC Radio Berkshire and producer of Punters on BBC Radio 4 before moving to Capital Radio, working as a news reporter on Capital FM and Gold and also presenting "The Way It Is ." Richards moved to Chrysalis Radio in 1995 working on Heart 106.2 , becoming its News Editor in 1997 and Network Head of News in 1999 in which role he oversaw news operations and output for the group's Heart and Galaxy stations before Chrysalis was bought by Global Radio in 2007 for GBP 170 million (Then USD 340 million - See RNW Jul 31, 2007 ) and was promoted by the new owners from the post of LBC's Editorial News Director to Programme Director to replace Scott Solder, who left radio. Announcing Richards' departure in an email to staff, Global Radio's director of broadcasting, Richard Park, said Richards had "been instrumental in taking LBC's listening figures from strength to strength and has also been a key figure in the development of the group's news function." Parks went on to wish Richards "every success for the future" and Richards said the departure was by "amicable agreement" but nothing was said of his plans for the future.
