* ''Literature/TheWarOfTheWorlds'' is particularly prone to this in adaptations, with the [[Radio/TheWarOfTheWorlds 1938 radio play]], the [[Film/TheWarOfTheWorlds1953 1953 film]], the [[Series/WarOfTheWorlds 1980s]] [=TV=] series, and two of the three [[Film/TheWarOfTheWorlds 2005 films]] moving the setting to the present day from the novel's 1902. Music/JeffWayne's RockOpera [[Music/JeffWaynesMusicalVersionOfTheWarOfTheWorlds adaptation]] (and the [[VideoGame/JeffWaynesWarOfTheWorlds PC game]] based on it), along with the third of the 2005 releases, are the only ones that ''keep'' the original setting.

* A 1998 MadeForTVMovie of ''Literature/AliceThroughTheLookingGlass'' on Creator/ChannelFour had a contemporary setting, although the nature of Looking Glass Land is such that this was only obvious in the FramingStory (where Kate Beckinsdale's Alice is [[AgeLift a grown woman]] reading ''Through the Looking Glass'' to her daughter) and the costuming decisions.

* ChannelFour schools programmes about Shakespeare often did this: ''Julius Caesar'' [-AS A MODERN DAY POLITICIAN! WITH MARK ANTHONY'S FINAL SPEECH BEING TELEVISED!-]; ''Macbeth'' [-ON A COUNCIL ESTATE! WITH TEENAGE WITCHES ON ROLLERBLADES!-]; ''Twelfth Night'' [-WITH THE ROUND SUNG BY SIR TOBY AND FESTE AS A RAP!-] Since they only did a couple of scenes, they didn't have to maintain the concept for the whole play.
* ChannelFour again, ''Theatre/{{Macbeth}}'' [-IN MODERN DAY SCOTLAND, ONLY IT'S STILL AN INDEPENDENT COUNTRY!-]
