Added DiffLines:

* The ''Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries'' FanSequel, ''WebVideo/StarTrekContinues'', uses this a plot point in the episode "What Ships Are For", and it even has an InUniverse justification. Due to special radiation emitted by their sun, the inhabitants of Hyalinus are unable to see color, and as a result see everything in monochrome, something which also affects the crew of the ''Enterprise'' as they visit the planet, and as a result, [[PaintingTheMedium all the scenes taking place on Hyalinus are rendered in black and white]]. This also works to hide the plot twist that [[spoiler:Sekara and Thaius and several other "Hyalians" are actually Abicians]].

* This is a staple feature of nighttime filming in ParanormalInvestigation shows; in ''Series/TheDeadFiles'', for instance, Amy Allen's psychic reading of the supposedly haunted location is always filmed in [=B/W=] while everything else that happens is in full color.

* Some shots in ''Film/AprilShowers'' use this to look like security camera footage, evoking UsefulNotes/{{Columbine}} footage.

* ''Series/StarTrekVoyager'': The holoprogram ''The Adventures of Captain Proton!'' is black and white as it's based on 1930s/50s serials like ''[[Film/FlashGordonSerial Flash Gordon]]'' and ''Commando Cody''. When the holographic Doctor walks onto the holodeck, Harry Kim quickly tells the computer to "adjust the Doctor's spectral frequency" whereupon the Doctor turns monochrome too, much to his annoyance.

** Music/JoyDivision's album covers for ''Music/UnknownPleasures'' and ''Music/{{Closer}}'' are all fittingly black-and-white, for such gloomy music.

** Music/JoyDivision's album covers for ''Music/UnknownPleasures'' and ''Music/{{Closer}}'' are all fittingly black-and-white, for such gloomy music. This also applies to ''photos'' of the band as well; it can be surprising so see a picture of Ian Curtis in color.
