Roses is the annual sporting competition between York and Lancaster. Each university take it in turns to host; York have the odd years, Lancaster the evens.

Historically, the scale of YSTV's coverage has varied, with coverage being particularly limited when the event was held in Lancaster. More recently, both home and away Roses have become YSTV's largest event of the year by far, featuring a large number of simultaneous outside broadcasts, a studio and VT unit and extensive collaboration with other media groups.

Some of YSTV's oldest tapes cover Roses. 1981 and 1982's tournament was covered by Lancaster's student TV service (now long since defunct), and YSTV somehow came into the posession of two tapes of coverage. Some of 1981's opening was re-used twenty years later for Roses 2001 coverage.
