Definitely a Ferguson! It's a 436T by the look of it.

What's more irksome is that there's another set wasted - probably bought as "Film prop etc." from a popular website.

Yes the set right at the end looked like it had a 'live' tube. The implosion looked too real to be staged.

There's a Ferguson like this one on e bay for sale at the mo.
I don't know about the video, how much is recorded "real" and how much is CGI? Surely it would be difficult to walk around with a proper tv cabinet on your head?
I watched the set hitting the deck frame by frame. It certainly looks like an original vintage cabinet but possibly not a Ferguson? The safety glass is seen to explode but I'm not sure it had a tube as such? There looks like a screen of some sort behind the glass but well set back from the front.
Weird video! No idea what it's about...
Rich.

No product placement for Ferguson/Marconiphone/Ultra in that video! The badge has been removed. Quite clearly a Thorn 8500 series set.

Props modelmakers are very good at this sort of thing. One show I'm working on at the moment had some dummy toilets made; they were made out of fibreglass, thus making them considerably lighter than the real thing which was necessary for the plot.

And believe me, you had to get your nose right up to them to realise that they weren't the real deal.

I thought that was going to be the Porridge episode where Ronnie Barker at one point ends up balancing a working BRC 1500 on his head...
