One precise example of realization of the holographic principle is the CS/WZW correspondence, which relates 3d Chern-Simons theory with the 2d Wess-Zumino-Witten model. As explained for example in this article in nlab there is a relation between this correspondence and the AdS3/CFT2 correspondence (which in turn relates 3d gravity and 2d conformal field theory). In particular CS/WZW appears to be some part (nlab says "sector") of the full AdS/CFT correspondence.

How does CS/WZW appear inside AdS3/CFT2? I'm asking, if possible, for a rough explanation of how this works. It seems that this happens in other dimensions too. Is there any similar TFT/CFT correspondence that can be seen as a sector of the usual AdS/CFT setting with $\rm{AdS}_5\times S^5$ type II supergravity / 4d $\mathcal{N}=4$ super Yang-Mills?
