[Classweb-users] Subject heading query: Motion pictures

Good morning/afternoon.

I have a small query regarding the difference between the subject heading:

650#0$aMotion pictures, Australian.

AND the geographically subdivided version, 

650#0$aMotion Pictures $zAustralia.

Myself and another colleague are confused as to the meaning of the scope note:

"Here are entered works on motion pictures produced by Australian film companies and shown outside of Australia. General works on motion pictures shown in Australia or produced by Australian film companies are entered under Motion pictures--Australia."

The difference appears to be very subtle,

Any assistance is greatly appreciated,

your sincerely,

Robert Deininger
