start the display. Eight pyrotechnicians work for two days 
to get more than half a tonne of giant fireworks into
position and ready for launch. Some of these giants shoot
over 600ft into the sky before exploding, so the display is
visible for miles. The display is fired from a barge moored 
on the Thames between Waterloo and Blackfriars bridges.
Great views can be had from either bridge, from Victoria 
Embankment, or from anywhere on the South Bank between about
the National Theatre and Tate Modern.
