Many stories could illustrate how "primitive" source control was but the best is probably the "ZAP SC" story at 15m14s:
On his first day one developer managed to delete the full 900MB of Strike Commander source tree. The IT team spent 72 hours recovering everything from developers machines. The interview also mention that Wing Commander 1 and 2 code was exchanged via floppy disks: They did not have a network until SC !
HELP! Desperately need to recover over 900MB of lost data from network! Respond ASAP! Call 011.49.54.21895 *** Mr Zap ***
