We present a catalogue of 6206 stars which have proper motions exceeding yr-1 with an R-band faint magnitude limit of 19.5 mag. This catalogue has been produced using SuperCOSMOS digitized R-band ESO and UK Schmidt Plates in 131 Schmidt fields covering more than 3 000 square degrees (>7.5% of the whole sky) at the South Galactic Cap. The survey is ≥90% complete within the nominal limits of the Luyten Two Tenths Catalogue of mag and yr-1, and is ≥80% complete for mag and yr-1.
