I think it's a mistake to minimize the efforts of the programmers who wrote that code. Their toolset was minimal and unbelievably primitive compared to what we're used to. The hardware was cramped, to say the least. They had very few resources when they found problems. I can only assume they had a premium support contract from IBM, which meant they might be able to call someone on the phone to help out.
 
All of that diminishes to insignificance when compared to the consequences if they made a mistake. Three lives, millions of dollars in hardware, and the dreams of a nation could die.
