The program was a Nova episode called "Magnetic Storm".  The poles reverse
every quarter million years or so on average, but not with regularity.  It's
been 700,000-800,000 since the last one.  Over the last century the field
has weakened, and, should it continue weakening at the same rate, it would
reach a switchable state sometime near 2550.  But this may not be a
continuous trend, but rather a wave in an irregular cycle.  Right now, the
field is as strong as it's been in 50,000 years; and although it has been
weaker in the last three-quarter-million-years, it's maintained its polar

At present, the earth's magnetic poles are in the process of reversing,
which is causing the magnetic fields to be irregular and to break up. There
was a very good program on public television not too long ago that explained
it, and how it's a regular event every few thousand years.
