The first results are reported on (He-6,Be-8) two-proton pick-up reactions on C-12, O-16, and F-19 nuclei. The measurements were done with an 18 MeV beam on (LiF)-Li-6, (LiF)-Li-7, (Li2CO3)-Li-6, and C-12 targets. The measured angular distributions for the C-12(He-6,Be-8)Be-10 (g.s.) and C-12(He-6,Be-8)Be-10(*)(3.37 MeV) reactions show a clear signature of a direct process. Although the contributions from the Li-6(He-6,Be-8)H-4 reaction were observed, no clear extraction of the H-4 data was possible.
