like many I loved his shows but its best to be honest and remember he was also sexist and racist.

Well for a 'sexist' he had a funny way of showing it.  He helped many, many girls to follow their hobby and also to gain employment giving them his time and helping with equipment and his connections. The well known astronomer Heather Couper was one such I believe. If you really think Patrick was as you say would you please provide proof. Most of the money he earned went to helping other people including FEMALES - a more generous man you would never find.
