I saw the program last night and it was very interesting. I like the fact that they conducted an actual experiment in a pool with the appropriate conditions based on the size of the things they were using.
I think that experiment failed because it had no compartments that could implode. There was no vacuum on that boat at all, and they were no where deep enough. I was very disappointed, usually they use a bit more care in the replications.
