Long before Darran and comedy cohort Andy Evans were co-opted by the RIDE Channel to make their hotly debated pisstake series 'The Tech Files' - Darran and Andy were up to something fairly similar in Brighton.

The original Dr Tech series came out in around 2008 and followed a similarly tongue-in-cheek trajectory mixing deep historical insight with equally profound irreverence and basically just making fun of everyone, including themselves.

We figured that this one has say neglected for far too long so here are the original 6 episodes of Dr Tech's Freestyle Laboratory that went onto to birth RIDE channel's Tech Files, and thousands of angry YouTube comments from kids with zero sense of humour.
