Use the original release or broadcast title in the country of production as the uniform title.

Works produced simultaneously in multiple languages are all considered originals.  Use the title in the language of the original being cataloged as the uniform title.  See A3.3.

A uniform title should include one of the following qualifiers:  (Motion picture) or (Television program).  If a work was both distributed theatrically and broadcast on television, use the qualifier for the original distribution.  If the original distribution is unknown, use the qualifier (Motion picture).  Other titles by which the work is known should be recorded as cross-references on the authority record.  Do not use the qualifier (Motion picture) on uniform title series added entries for non-television series.

If the original release or broadcast title is unknown, use any known title as the uniform title.

If the uniform titles of different moving image works would be the same, use the following qualifiers to break such conflicts, in this order:

1)   original release or broadcast date

2)   director

3)   production company (use the first one recorded in the statement of responsibility in the title area)
