The Chart Show was a music video programme which ran in the United Kingdom on Channel 4 between 1986 and 1988, then on ITV between 1989 and 1998 (known as the ITV Chart Show). The show was designed to compete with established pop shows such as the BBC's Top of the Pops and was influenced by the video formats of MTV. The show was unique in that it had no presenters, instead computer-generated displays took their place in between promotional videos of artists. The programme included amongst videos, alternate specialist charts (mainly rock, indie and dance) and a Top Ten, which was initially compiled by MRIB between 1986 and 1988.

Peel mentioned The Chart Show on his 07 October 1986 show to listeners when he told them that an exclusive video of the Very Things' This Is Motortown track would be broadcast on that show on Friday 10th October. Peel's name was broadcast as The Peel Session on the image/video of the artist on the programme's indie charts, when they released singles under that name despite the songs not being of that title. Some of the Peel Session titles were played on the show.
