The idea was devised by James Gallagher, as a pun on "This Is Your Life" and the "YOUR:" branding that had been used across campus since 2001. He took a big red book around campus and got students to write what they would like prospective candidates to have as policies. Usually something like a 24-hour library or better sports facilities got a lot of entries. The book was presented to Chris Osbourne, the returning officer. It was played out as a programme in it's own right for the following year, and is available to watch on the YSTV website. A number of cock-ups (and general japes) from the filming of this made it into YSTV's Bloomers.
In 2005 and 2006 the "This Is Your Life" similarities were played down, with the theme tune not used and, in 2006, the title simply being "YOUR: Manifesto". The big red book survived however.
