Can anyone get me a good quality frame shot of that large firework lifting off towards the end of the program please? Would like to use it for my arvatar! Ohh and one of the shockwave from the helicopter camera view.

Cheers,

Not to worry Chaz, I have a reasonable quality digital recording of the whole program if anyone wants a copy. Its a bit big tho, so probably best if anyone wants it, PM me your address and ill stick a dvd in the post.
