Following the announcement of potential B star pulsators discovered in OGLE data on the LMC (Pigulski & Kolaczkowski 2002; Kolaczkowski & Pigulski 2006, Diago et al. 2009), and in ASAS-3 data on Galactic stars (Pigulski & Pojmanski (2008), Pigulski (private communication)), a number of long-term photometric campaigns on a variety of B stars have been conducted by the authors’ research group since late 2009. This paper summarises the recent results of these campaigns.
