I wouldn't worry. In the video score, the F# is a dotted minim (3 beats). The piece is in 3/4 so it should be clear – arithmetically and musically – that the leading note (A#) is played on the third beat while the F# is to be held, tied to note in the next bar. The ABRSM edition just makes this explicit rather than implicit. It looks like the videographer is using a set of the 12 pieces Op 205 as this piece is numbered 11 which is correct for the Allegretto grazioso. I suppose the publishers could have repeated what's been done in the lower stave of bar 15: a double stemmed note would achieve the same thing.
I played this for my grade 3 last year and the examiner seemed to like my realisation according to his write up and score.

Thank you very much Ligneo Fistula, for your very helpful clarification.
I found that particular bar a bit tricky.
