Pot-pourri, 5 minutes long, seems to be a collage of extracts from her BBC work.

It was performed on 10th September 1966 as part of the Unit Delta Plus Concert of Electronic Music and the concert programme entry for it reads:

Each of the short sections was composed as a piece of introductory music for the BBC, with similar rhythms, melodic intervals and sound qualities.

It was also performed as the first piece of a concert of electronic music at the Queen Elizabeth Hall on 15th January 1968.[1]
