We present briefly some results of the ESO Large Program “First Stars" where it is shown that the abundance ratios of some light elements in the atmospheres of the extremely metal poor stars varies when the star evolves. This could be explained by a mixing with deep layers but such a mixing is not predicted by the theory.
