Thing that doesn't make sense

I don't know if pointing out minor plotholes in a radio programme 35 years after broadcast is really the done thing, but, re the Hitchhiker's Guide entry on the Haggunenons, how the heck does a book whose sole entry on the planet Earth reads (at the time) "Harmless," know who Charles Darwin and Isaac Newton were..?

As I remember, there were longer reports about earth but only a limited amount of storage in the book, so that the subeditors at Megadodo House had to do some serious curtailing.
So there was more known about Earth and many other planets than was in the Book. This may help to fill the plot hole.
