While investigating the Numbers Bars study I can see "Volume / Sec" as an option but is there any way to instead view only the Bid Volume or Ask Volume per second? Is there any way to do this with a different study? I would also be interested in per minute or other relatively short timeframe.

You can certainly do this but you need to create your own custom study.

This may achieve what you want.

On a clean chart, add "Ask Volume" and "Bid Volume" studies.
Study Settings > Settings and Inputs, set the chart region on both studies to the same as the chart. (Chart Region 1)
Set the scale on both studies to "Same as region".
Study Settings > Subgraphs, set colour to say green for Ask volume, Draw style "Value On Low", Width/Size to say 15 so you can see the number clearly.
Study Settings > Subgraphs, set colour to say red for Bid volume, Draw style "Value On High", Width/Size to say 15 so you can see the number clearly.
This will give you the Ask Volume below each bar and the Bid Volume above each bar.

Adjust the bar type/duration etc. to what you require.
