Pre-CD:UK/SM:TV the actual show was only 2 hours too- then you had The Chart Show after at 11:30 which was separate from the preceding show. And obviously post-SM:TV too when CD:UK was separate from MoM. It was only really with SM:TV that the music show was considered part of the main Saturday show, being made in the same studio by the same production team (and even then, there was more of a distinction after Ant, Dec and Cat left).
I guess you had Tricky in the spring of 1997 that was made by the same people as The Chart Show- but there was no distinction or connection between the two of them on screen at all.
