Beth Britten et al. in Broadcasting House - 17 February, 1933, 09:00 PM

from Journeying boy : the diaries of the young Benjamin Britten 1928-1938, page 131:

Mum. goes to dinner with Barbara. Beth & I pick her up after & go to B.B.C. at 9.0, where Mangeot etc. broadcasts my Fantasy 5tet, quite creditably. It isn't a good work, but the rest of the programme - Darnton's Trio & Erik Chisholme's 2bl Trio* - 45 mins!!! Bridges & Brosas there.
