We discuss our U, B, V, I survey of the central 8^\circ \times 8^\circ of the Large Magellanic Cloud and 3.5^\circ \times 4.5^\circ of the Small Magellanic Cloud. In particular we describe our scientific objectives, the use of a new drift-scanning camera, the parameters of the survey, and highlight our reduction and analysis of the data from our first observing season.
