To be fair, how much of a 60 year legacy can you present 44 minutes?  You could do a ten-part documentary and still probably leave things out.  Assuming, of course, much of it still existed.

On another topic, it's not entirely unheard of for one channel to air another's programming.  Back in the 70s, I vaguely remember when on late Friday nights, WBEN (now WIVB) used to air a few late-night ABC network shows while WKBW showed a movie -- or maybe it was the other way around.

 

 
I think I remember that WBEN carried  the Joey Bishop show from ABC because WKBW could make more money on movies, including Friday night’s “Fright Night Late Show.”
