This catalogue consists of two parts, namely: Part I, an alphabetical index of eight hundred titles of motion pictures subdivided by subject groups such as anatomy, dermatology and endocrinology, and a numerical cross reference. Part II contains the names of two hundred abstracted films which appear to be rather complete; however, no evaluation has been made on any of the listed films. In the numerical cross reference section, seventyfour catalogue numbers are included without titles.

In addition to films for the medical profession, motion pictures on such subjects as health, dentistry and veterinary medicine are also included.

Films representing several countries other than Great Britain, such as United States, Germany, Australia, Sweden and Scotland, are listed in this catalogue

The appendix consists of a brief history of the following societies: The Scientific Film Association, organized in 1943 and devoted to the interest of film users, The Royal Society of Medicine
