Camille, “Biloxi Cooks!”, highlight BTV in August

August is the anniversary month of Camille and Katrina, and this month on BTV the public is reminded to stay prepared with replays of “Camille: The original monster storm”.

The city’s municipal TV channel, BTV, is airing Mississippi filmmaker Rex Jones’s hour-long documentary of the storm that ranks as the second-most intense hurricane to strike the continental United States, claiming the lives of 256 individuals and causing more than $1 billion in damage.

Jones wanted to make sure the original monster storm, Camile, got appropriate due in 2019 when the killer storm’s 50th anniversary rolled around. And as a reminder of how dangerous a storm can be and to not be complacent, the documentary will play each day this month at 8 a.m., 2 p.m., and 8 p.m.

“Biloxi Cooks!” this month offers a twist on a summer favorite, the watermelon. The chef of BR Prime, the “quintessential American steakhouse” at the Beau Rivage, prepares a Tomato Watermelon Salad. Videographer Renny Sherman visited the resort and toured the modern glam restaurant to put together this month’s episode. “Biloxi Cooks!” airs daily on BTV at 7 a.m., 1 p.m., and 7 p.m.

Also airing in August: Replays of Biloxi City Council meetings, in the three-hour block at 9 a.m., 3 p.m., and 9 p.m., and a host of local programming, including updates from Keesler Air Force Base, the Biloxi Public Schools, and the monthly infrastructure update.
