Replace 'though' with 'but'. Two show contrasting qualities, 'but' is used.
e.g. She is poor but honest.
The correct sentence should be: The programme was almost fixed but it was his negligence that led to disappointment.
But/Yet are used interchangeably in many cases.
e.g. It is strange 'yet/but' it is true.
