Recently there was a question on OCLC-CAT about the use of --Juvenile drama.  The answer was found in SCM H 2230:

 

a. Fiction films. Assign the following headings, as appropriate, to individual fiction films:

 

·   Topical headings with the subdivision –Drama (or, in the case of juvenile fiction films, the subdivision –Juvenile films).

 

 

and H 1690:

 

5. Juvenile films and sound recordings.

 

a. General. Use the subdivisions –Juvenile films and –Juvenile sound recordings for either fictional or factual treatment of a topic. For fictional films, use Children's films as an additional heading.

 

There is also H 1780 and that point I got really confused.  Why --Juvenile films and not --Juvenile drama?  Why would --Drama and --Juvenile drama mean different things, other than intellectual level?  Why would any subject heading/subdivision cover fiction and nonfiction?
