Summary:  We classify those Hilbert spaces, contractively contained in a vector-valued H^2-space, that are carried into themselves contractively by the backward shift. We then show when a completely non-unitary operator is unitarily equivalent to the action of the backward shift on one of its contractively invariant spaces.
