We report on some recent results from a long-term UBVI survey of various fields in the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC), which is aimed at identifying and classify- ing pulsating B stars in the selected LMC fields. Difference Imaging Analysis shows a clear advantage over conventional PSF fitting. Tentative indications have been found of a varying incidence of pulsation amplitudes (and, by inference, of metal content of the pulsators) across the LMC bar
