Just watched the first two episodes. Interesting stuff.
The incident in the carpark with the car alarms and remote locking was interesting. Especially the problem solving.
A mate of mine had a Ford Sierra XR4x4 with an aftermarket Clifford alarm/immobiliser installed and had the same problem at Manchester Airport. The RAC technician said this was a regular problem. He towed the car a couple of miles down the road and the car started perfectly. The technician said under certain conditions the airport's radar system would jam the transmission from the key fob.

But they'll gloss over the real 'phantoms' just like you'd expect - because researching them and trying to get first-hand experience of them involves more than internet write-ups harvesting which is the basic bulk of what's chosen to spotlight.
There are 'phantoms' and there are real mystery phantoms and not all are man made.
